Don't Stop

By Ali Cross

I’m quite sure most of you have read this quote—it’s probably been shared here before too. But when a friend recently shared it with me it hit me with such force, I felt it bore repeating.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland once said,

"God expects you to have enough faith and determination and enough trust in Him to keep moving, keep living, keep rejoicing. In fact, He expects you not simply to face the future; He expects you to embrace and shape the future--to love it and rejoice in it and delight in your opportunities.

God is anxiously waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as He always has. But He can't if you don't pray, and He can't if you don't dream. In short, He can't if you don't believe."

I want you to take a moment and really think about what Elder Holland has said here. Print out the quote and read it every day this week. Put his teachings to use in your life.

I’m going to—I hope you do too.
