President Monson Shares Heavenly Father Saved You "to Come to the Earth 'for Such a Time as This'"


We live in the latter days, a time when the fullness of the gospel is on the earth but so are many challenges and struggles unique to this time. 

In a Facebook post, President Monson recently shared an incredibly hopeful message for when we have to endure the trials or overcome the challenges we face in this day and age. 

Although there have always been challenges in the world, many of those which you face are unique to this time. But you are some of our Heavenly Father’s strongest children, and He has saved you to come to the earth “for such a time as this.”
With His help, you will have the courage to face whatever comes. Though the world may at times appear dark, you have the light of the gospel, which will be as a beacon to guide your way.
My earnest prayer is that you will have the courage required to refrain from judging others, the courage to be chaste and virtuous, and the courage to stand firm for truth and righteousness. As you do so, you will be “an example of the believers,” and your life will be filled with love and peace and joy.…/…/may-you-have-courage…
