Here is today’s October 2022 general conference quote to ponder:

March 21: “It is one thing to ‘hear Him’ in a quiet place of contemplation with scriptures wide open. But it is quite another thing to carry our discipleship into this mortal flurry of distractions, where we must strive to ‘hear Him’ even through the blur of self-concern and faltering confidence.” —President Steven J. Lund

In his general conference talk, President Lund spoke on the topic of lasting discipleship. He encouraged listeners to continue praying often, read the scriptures, and to serve sincerely. He also testified that by “trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ and His covenant path, we can find spiritual confidence and peace as we nurture holy habits and righteous routines that can sustain and fuel the fires of our faith.” Here are more resources about spiritual confidence.
