Lord, I Believe

We recently visited Forsyth as a Stake Relief Society presidency, and enjoyed the lesson, which was from the April 2013 General Conference message by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland entitled, "Lord I Believe."

Here are a few favorite quotes from the lesson:

"When problems come and questions arise, do not start your quest for faith by saying how much you do not have, leading as it were with your 'unbelief '. That is like trying to stuff a turkey through the beak! Let me be clear on this point: I am not asking you to pretend to faith you do not have. I am asking you to be true to the faith you do have."

"Brothers and sisters, this is a divine work in process, with the manifestations and blessings of it abounding in every direction, so please don’t hyperventilate if from time to time issues arise that need to be examined, understood, and resolved. They do and they will. In this Church, what we know will always trump what we do not know. And remember, in this world, everyone is to walk by faith."

"... be kind regarding human frailty—your own as well as that of those who serve with you in a Church led by volunteer, mortal men and women. Except in the case of His only perfect Begotten Son, imperfect people are all God has ever had to work with. That must be terribly frustrating to Him, but He deals with it. So should we."
