Here is a spiritual thought from President Uchtdorf:
“I have seen enough ups and downs throughout my life to know that winter will surely give way to the warmth and hope of a new spring. … I am optimistic about the future. For our part, we must remain steadfast in hope, work with all our strength, and trust in God.
“The Lord doesn’t expect us to work harder than we are able. He doesn’t (nor should we) compare our efforts to those of others. Our Heavenly Father asks only that we do the best we can — that we work according to our full capacity, however great or small that may be.”
- Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “Work, Learn, and Love,” New Era, Nov. 2009, 5
