Makes You Think

In a recent nine-minute video devotional, Sister Michelle D. Craig, First Counselor in the Young Women General Presidency, shared five lessons learned from the Salt Lake Temple renovation. The video begins with Sister Craig standing in front of the renovation site, but soon you realize you are watching rare footage of the temple renovation. Still, perhaps the most powerful parts of the video are the lessons shared by Sister Craig as she has watched the renovation process on Temple Square nearly every day since it began in January.

Sister Craig began by explaining that Elder David A. Bednar shared that the Church knew this renovation process would need to take place for a long time. The temple needed to be brought up to modern building code, but the time was never right. Today, the right team along with the technology and equipment needed are available.

“Sometimes we know something needs to happen in our lives,” Sister Craig said as she taught the first of five lessons shared in the video. “We may pray for an answer and feel like we’re just not getting it. Trust the Lord and His timing. He knows the end from the beginning, He knows what and who we need now and what and who we will need tomorrow. If we trust Him, He will get us up to code to last for the eternities.”
