“We can be blessed to conquer our fears and strengthen our faith as we follow the Lord’s instruction.” – David A. Bednar
We live in a world that is constantly in commotion. Divisiveness explodes off of our news feeds and computer screens until we find ourselves wanting to curl up into the fetal position and never leave the comfort of our beds. At least, that is how I have felt on more than one occasion. But there is one thing that can reach through the commotion and divisiveness and pull me out of my cloud of fear.
My testimony of and faith in the Savior.
“Look unto me in every thought. Doubt not. Fear not.” D&C 6:36
It’s the simplest of instructions from the Lord and yet, it is something that is often overlooked; especially when we spend too much time reading about this catastrophe or that politician or a whole host of other things floating around in Facebook land.
Well my friends, I am telling you right now, overcoming fear is as simple as looking to the Savior in every thought. With Him there is no need to doubt; there is no need to fear. The formula is simple, but we make it complex.
“I know that by acting on our faith in Him we can be cleansed and changed to become pure and strong, as a little child.” –President Henry B. Eyring
Stand strong in your faith in the Savior. Fill your minds with thoughts of Him instead of what’s lurking on your social media feed. Look to Him. Trust in Him. With Him, there is no need to fear.
