A thought from the Scriptures

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. - Rev. 21:7

"It is no secret that Satan wages open war with the truth and all those who live righteous lives," said Elder Marvin J. Ashton of the Quorum of the Twelve during the October 1990 general conference. "He deceives with skill and effectiveness even his own followers. He would have us give up, quit, rebel when setbacks come. Sometimes in life when we are committed to and are following proper patterns, we experience heavy bumps and anxious hours. Many times true winners in life are those who have been hurt and disappointed but have risen above these challenges. Very often in life, God gives us difficulties to bring out the best in us. It is true, life does not determine winners. Winners determine life."
