New Year Motivation 2016
“Personally, I am enthusiastic about the future. You can be too.
You are living in the most exciting period of time in history.
Many reasons could be cited for that optimism.
Yet your greatest source of hope and assurance is that you have the fulness of the teachings of the Master.
They will show you how to live a good life.
—Elder Richard G. Scott, The Power of Righteousness
“Some of you may wonder: Is there any future for me?
What does a new year or a new semester, a new major or a new romance, a new job or a new home hold for me?
Will I be safe?
Will life be sound?
Can I trust in the Lord and in the future?
Or would it be better to look back, to go back, to stay in the past?
“To all such of every generation, I call out, ‘Remember Lot’s wife.’ Faith is for the future. Faith builds on the past but never longs to stay there. Faith trusts that God has great things in store for each of us and that Christ truly is the ‘high priest of good things to come’ (Hebrews 9:11).”
—Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, The Best Is Yet to Be
“Do what is right; be faithful and fearless.
Onward, press onward, the goal is in sight.
Eyes that are wet now, ere long will be tearless.
Blessings await you in doing what’s right!”
—LDS Hymns, #237, Do What Is Right
