The Mormon Channel recently released a video showing the pain of returning home from a mission early through one man's story. Jake was eager to serve a full-time mission, but life had different plans. He kept asking himself: "What could I have done to have prevented this from happening? And what could I have done to make sure that I did serve that full-time two-year mission?"
But, he continues: "I've come to realize since then that God does not ask us those kinds of questions. What God asks us is: how are you going to get up and move on? How are you going to become a better person? And are you willing to let me in to help you through this process? . . . If we can just answer 'yes' to that question . . . we can be lifted to such unimaginable heights."
