Nevertheless, all flesh is in mine hand, and he that is faithful among you shall not perish by the waters.—Doctrine and Covenants 61:6
If things don’t turn out the way you hoped or expected, be ready to accept the will of your Heavenly Father. We know that He will not inflict upon us anything that is not ultimately for our good. Listen for that calming voice that murmurs in our ears, “All flesh is in mine hands; be still and know that I am God.”—Gérald J. Caussé
This Day in Church History
1840: Forty-one Saints set sail from Liverpool, England on the ship Britannia, en route to Nauvoo; these are the first Saints to gather from Europe.
1874: Little Solider and his tribe of Native Americans from the Ogden area are baptized; this is one of the earliest tribes to join the Church.
1979: The Vision of the Celestial Kingdom, given to Joseph Smith Jr., and the Vision of the Redemption of the Dead, given to Joseph F. Smith, are transferred from the Pearl of Great Price to the Doctrine and Covenants, becoming sections 137 and 138.
How can we trust God’s will in our lives?
