It was said of our Savior, “He went about doing good,” (Acts 10:38). Don’t wait for an invitation to become the person you were designed to become. As young single adults and children of God, your headline should also be, “they went about doing good.” When your focus is on increasing and demonstrating your love for God and your love for your fellowmen, you will find meaning and happiness in your life.
The next time you feel unhappy, remember where you came from and where you are going. Rather than focus on things that dampen your thoughts with sorrow, choose to focus on those things that fill your soul with hope. You will realize that these things are always connected to serving God and our fellowmen.
The wonderful thing about the gospel is that we have God’s promise that we will have a “happily ever after” far greater than anything we can imagine. If you do your part, your “happily ever after” is guaranteed.
It may not come in the way you expected it. But you will one day look back and realize how all that you did—your obedience, your holding on to faith, your enduring to the end—will be very much worth it. It will be worth it beyond your ability to comprehend.
My dear young friends, God will bless and protect you; His angels will go before you and beside you, and bear you up in times of difficulty.
