A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on joy and promises

The drum of the realization of the promise is beating, we are sweeping the road to the sky. Your joy is here today, what remains for tomorrow?

A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on direction, gifts, god, guidance, promises, and strength

There is a gift available to all of us-the gift of looking to God for direction. Here is an avenue of strength, comfort, and guidance. . . . "Look to God and live." This is the wonderful promise given so often in the scriptures. . . . Our capacity to see and comprehend is increased only in proportion to our willingness to look. God becomes more approachable as we look to him.

A Quote by Marjorie Holmes on god, life, mistakes, promises, and weather

My God would never deliberately bring harm to anyone. But if it happens, if it simply happens due to wind and rain and weather and man's own mistakes, then God has promises to keep: Li£e continuing. An even richer, fuller, brighter ongoing life to compensate.

A Quote by M. Russell Ballard on blindness, faith, god, men, promises, soul, trouble, and world

If we are faithful in keeping the commandments of God, His promises will be fulfilled to the very letter. . . . The trouble is, the adversary of men's souls blinds their minds. He throws dust, so to speak, in their eyes, and they are blinded with the things of this world.

M. Russell Ballard (1928 -)

A Quote by Loyd J. Ericson on anger, conflict, desires, disappointment, discontent, effort, embarrassment, emotion, existence, expectation, fear, feeling, goals, idealism, mind, perfection, promises, resentment, trying, and world

The term ideal, herein is not used in the sense of an abstract, unattainable perfection; but rather it means a worthy goal that has promise of attainment through appropriate efforts. The gap between where you are and where you desire to be creates a mental and emotional conflict, "a holy discontent" - often called stress in today's world. Normally the first response to stress is to mentally and emotionally run over the outward indications of the conflict - anger, fear, disappointment, resentment, embarrassment, or other such negative feelings. In doing this one's mind is trying to fill the gap between his expectation of what he desires and what actually exists.
