We live in very interesting time. It feels like with every passing month, the year 2020 has something new to throw at us. It is too easy to join the hate that is spewing across the nation, and hard to be calm and at peace with one another. There are many of us that feel uncomfortable, fearful, and scared of the future. How can we find peace in these uncertain times?
The lyrics to the song Where Can I Turn for Peace? by Emma Lou Thayne come to mind. The opening three lines probably encompass what many members are feeling across the country:
“Keep your covenants and you will be safe. Break them and you will not.
The Book of Mormon is filled with stories of war, with the later chapters of Alma being considered "The War Chapters." The lessons that we learn in these chapters are many. The story of the Stripling Warriors come to mind as men who were faithful in the Gospel and went out to war. Because of the testimonies that their mother's help them forge within themselves, they were able to overcome the trials and tribulations of many battles and leave unscathed.
They exemplified the type of manhood that all of God’s sons and daughters should emulate and stood as a witness to the Nephite nation that God would deliver them if they were faithful.
Finally we must lean on our Savior Jesus Christ. The second verse of the song Where Can I Turn for Peace? truly exemplifies why we should look to Him in our times of fear and sorrow.
He, only One.
