A Quote by M. Russell Ballard on beginning, control, crisis, eternity, extremism, god, hope, purpose, and understanding

The Lord is in control. He knows the end from the beginning. He has given us adequate instruction that, if followed, will see us safely through any crisis. His purposes will be fulfilled, and someday we will understand the eternal reasons for all of these events. Therefore, today we must be careful to not overreact, nor should we be caught up in extreme preparations, but what we must do is keep the commandments of God and never loose hope!

M. Russell Ballard (1928 -)
