Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.—Isaiah 49:16
Sometime in the eternities to come, we will see that our trials were calculated to cause us to turn to our Heavenly Father for strength and support. Any affliction or suffering we are called upon to bear may be directed to give us experience, refinement, and perfection. —Delbert L. Stapley
