D&C 3:3 -- On Sources of Frustration

"Remember, remember that it is not the work of God that is frustrated, but the work of men;"
Doctrine and Covenants 3:3

This is a good reminder for us today.  God's plans never get screwed up or ruined.  Only ours do.  And sometimes, when we think that our plans *are* God's plans, then we think that we've destroyed something permanently or ruined not only our lives, but our eternities.  So, let's remember, remember that this isn't possible.  God's plan is always intact, and in it, we can always turn around, repent, and get back in the boat so that we don't drown.  He's always right there, reaching out his hand to save us.

Today, let's remember this, for ourselves and for other people.  Let's never dismiss anyone because of the choices they've made.  They still have access to God's perfect plan as well, and God asks us to love even our enemies.  Let's offer them the same love and grace that Christ offers us. :)  Let's work on avoiding frustration, from whatever source, and remember that God's work moves forward, no matter what.
