Perfect Messages from President Monson No Matter Who Wins the Election

Here are a few uplifting messages from our prophet, Thomas S. Monson, that can inspire us to trust in the Lord, no matter who wins the election.

Be of Good Cheer

I testify to you that our promised blessings are beyond measure. Though the storm clouds may gather, though the rains may pour down upon us, our knowledge of the gospel and our love of our Heavenly Father and of our Savior will comfort and sustain us and bring joy to our hearts as we walk uprightly and keep the commandments.

There will be nothing in this world that can defeat us.

My beloved brothers and sisters, fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith.

I declare that God lives and that He hears and answers our prayers. His Son, Jesus Christ, is our Savior and our Redeemer. Heaven’s blessings await us.

—Thomas S. Monson, "Be of Good Cheer," 2009 April general conference

Move Forward

I would encourage members of the Church wherever they may be to show kindness and respect for all people everywhere. The world in which we live is filled with diversity. We can and should demonstrate respect toward those whose beliefs differ from ours.

May we also demonstrate kindness and love within our own families. Our homes are to be more than sanctuaries; they should also be places where God’s Spirit can dwell, where the storm stops at the door, where love reigns and peace dwells.

The world can at times be a frightening place in which to live. The moral fabric of society seems to be unraveling at an alarming speed. . . . [Our Heavenly Father] is at the helm. We have nothing to fear. He is the God of light. He is the God of hope. I testify that He loves us—each one. . . .

At times there appears to be no light at the tunnel’s end—no dawn to break the night’s darkness. . . . We are inclined to view our own personal misfortunes through the distorted prism of pessimism. We feel abandoned, heartbroken, alone. If you find yourself in such a situation, I plead with you to turn to our Heavenly Father in faith. He will lift you and guide you. He will not always take your afflictions from you, but He will comfort and lead you with love through whatever storm you face. . . .

Together we shall move forward doing His work.

—Thomas S. Monson, "Looking Back and Moving Forward," 2008 April general conference
