Message from the R.S. Presidency October 2011

During this month’s General Conference, I was fascinated by the talk given by Robert D. Hales as he spoke about waiting upon the Lord. I thought that meant waiting for things to happen according to God’s time frame, which in a way it does. But according to Elder Hales, it also means hoping and trusting that His will be done, pondering, being patient, receiving the Holy Ghost, and relying on the merits of Christ. Waiting on the Lord doesn’t mean that we do nothing, but that we press forward and live according to our beliefs. Isaiah 40:31 says, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
