This past week was a little disappointing because many of the great potential investigators we've met haven't wanted to meet, as well as our other investigators and the less actives we are working with. As I've kept trying to give every day all that I have, I've been so thankful for the Lord's help in keeping my mind set toward the future, to the things I want to accomplish, rather than toward all the many ways I've fallen short in the past. In D&C 128 we read, "Brethren, shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward and not backward. Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory! Let your hearts rejoice, and be exceedingly glad." I used to think dwelling on shortcomings was good to keep me humble, but I've found greater humility as I actively seek to overcome them each day, trusting in the Lord and witnessing all that He will do for us. Faith and hope overcome sorrow and frustration when we always keep in mind goals, objective, and dreams, especially over long periods of time.
Have a great week everybody!
