A sick faith is a lethargic and afflicted faith. There can be faith failure. And faith failure can be worse than brake failure and heart failure. Faith failure can make disaster in life and destiny inevitable.
There is a living faith and a dead faith. When faith dies Devotion Measures Strength - The Untitled - Audio (File) is buried. As we approach the end of the age, faith in God is an endangered species but it must be preserved.
You must contend for your faith Jude Determine to fight consistently to ensure that the devil does not dilute your faith with doubt, fear and compromise. Register for Email Updates!

Whitney Clayton mentioned it in their wonderful talks at general conference.
This would cause the floors in the temple to dislodge from their inserts in the walls and pancake down. Were that to happen, the temple Devotion Measures Strength - The Untitled - Audio (File) crumble and fall.
The anticipated seismic upgrade includes putting approximately base isolators under the footings and foundation of the temple. These base isolators look like huge hockey pucks and function like shock absorbers, just like those in your vehicle. The base isolators will cushion or absorb earth movement so that an earthquake that measures 7.
Now, we may not think that sounds like a lot, but the Richter scale is logarithmic; the difference between 5. The base isolators become the foundation to the temple because they sit between the ground itself and the temple. I would like to talk about three metaphorical physical and spiritual seismic hits that you are likely to experience. These hits will be major. They will be real body blows to your sense of wellbeing.
For each metaphorical seismic hit, I will suggest one or more metaphorical base isolators that can put in place to help withstand the blow. The metaphorical base isolators overlap and function in unison with each other. They do not function in isolation, any more than the base isolators for the temple function separately. But it might be helpful to discuss them individually. Metaphorical seismic hit number one is anxiety for the future. It is not knowing what is going to happen.
When we do not know what is going to happen, we can become anxious. For instance, if we do not know what subject to major in, how well we are going to do, whether we are going to get into engineering school or whatever school, we can become apprehensive or fearful.
When we do not know whether we are going to find somebody we like, whether we are going to get married, or whether we will live happily ever after, we can become uneasy and fretful, Devotion Measures Strength - The Untitled - Audio (File).
The uncertainty of not knowing can create a huge seismic hit because uncertainty can be disorienting, depressing, and paralyzing. What is your base isolator for this uncertainty and the resultant anxiety that may persist in all stages of life? If such help is needed, then we should get that. The anxiety I am addressing, though, is not knowing the future in detail. This base isolator helps us maintain an eternal perspective and rely on the reality of Their goodness and Their love.
The scriptures offer some examples. As he and his family group traveled to their promised land, Abraham provided a key message for us. We know our ultimate destiny. This base isolator helps us as we go through life. It does not mean that we will not feel the seismic hit of uncertainty and anxiety, but it will be dampened a hundredfold, providing us the confidence to continue because we know that that uncertainty is temporary. Let me pose three questions. Second, do subsequent revelations through Joseph Smith and his successors provide anxiety-reducing insights about your ultimate destiny?
Metaphorical seismic hit number two is facing burdens, challenges, and difficulties. They include all trials that can and do happen in life. In general conference, President Russell M. Future trials could result from an accident, a natural disaster, or an unexpected personal heartache. To some extent in the pre-mortal existence, I suspect that we were told that this life would be difficult, filled with challenges.
But we probably did not know how Devotion Measures Strength - The Untitled - Audio (File) these burdens were going to be, and we would not until we experienced them. The base isolator, though, for these challenges is to recognize the added strength, capacity, and resilience God is willing to give us and the help that Devotion Measures Strength - The Untitled - Audio (File) inspires others to give us.
InElder David A. In addition to strengthening us, God inspires or arranges for others to help. An example of this is the experience of Moses when he was completely exasperated by the people in his stewardship. There was no food, so God provided them with manna.
