As members of the Church, we know that weakness, trials, and challenges are a necessary part of our mortal experience, but they can often seem overwhelming or discouraging.
After an amazing talk at the women's session of general conference, President Henry B. Eyring shared this sweet, hopeful message to the women of the Church about how we can make our weaknesses strengths and find peace in the gospel.
My dear sisters, how I cherished speaking to you at general women’s session. As I mentioned tonight, you may long for peace as you face uncertainty and what seem to you to be looming challenges.
Please remember that the Lord has given each of us weaknesses so that we can become strong. Your awareness of your weakness is a blessing as it helps you remain humble and keeps you turning to the Savior. The Spirit not only comforts you, but is the agent by which the Atonement works a change in your very nature. Then weak things become strong.
You will at times have your faith challenged by Satan; it happens to disciples of Jesus Christ. Your defense against these attacks is to keep the Holy Ghost as your companion. The Spirit will speak peace to your soul. He will urge you forward in faith. And He will bring back the memory of those times when you felt the light and the love of Jesus Christ.
Sisters, I pray for your success. I witness to you that the Father knows you, loves you, and hears your prayers. His Beloved Son is inviting you to come unto Him. And They send the Holy Ghost to attend you in your efforts to serve others for Them.
