“Nevertheless the Lord seeth fit to chasten his people; yea, he trieth their patience and their faith.” – Mosiah 23:21
“In my life I have learned that sometimes I do not receive an answer to a prayer because the Lord knows I am not ready. When He does answer, it is often “here a little and there a little” because that is all that I can bear or all I am willing to do.” – Robert D. Hales
