Give me a light…

This morning I read this quote that was too good to keep to myself.  This is the source if you’d like to look up the entire talk: https://speeches.byuh.edu/devotional/choose-a-growth-mindset

I love the poem written by Minnie Louise Haskins in 1908 and originally entitled “God Knows”.  It invites each of us to put our hand into the hand of God when we might be feeling fearful and the path ahead is not visible.  It reads like this:  And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:  “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”  And he replied:  “Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.  That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”  That poem leads my thoughts to a Book of Mormon scripture with a similar feel. It asks, “Know ye not that ye are in the hands of God? Know ye not that he hath all power …. ” (Mormon 5:23)?  When you feel overmatched, please remember that God can open all doors and help us climb the highest peaks.

Isn’t that inspiring?!  Happy Thursday!

Love

Laura
