Swallowed Up in the Joy of Christ

And the Lord provided for them that they should hunger not, neither should they thirst; yea, and he also gave them strength, that they should suffer no manner of afflictions, save it were swallowed up in the joy of Christ. Now this was according to the prayer of Alma; and this because he prayed in faith.

Seeking Great Truth

You seek truth, do you? The greatest truths cannot be spoken by the tongue of man; they are communicated by the Spirit of God to the spirit of man in a language not of this world. The preachers can only try to point at them with their words and their stories. The more they try to pin down Truth with words, the more likely it is that man will wrest them, misunderstand them, or be confused. To know the great truths, prepare yourself as a man builds a house for a bluebird. Find out the right height, the right size; keep predators away as much as possible. Then wait in faith that the bluebird will come.
