What helps me get through trying times throughout the day? That is an easy question to answer. Quite simply just reading my scriptures. That is a fact! I get upset, I open up my scriptures and the spirit that is invited by even just the simple act of reading them calms me down and comforts me. I could lose something, become angered or frustrated or anything else and it matters not. Why wont it bother me? I have the word of God and that is good enough for me! Hold to the Rod, the Iron Rod, Tis strong an bright and true. The iron Rod is the word of God, Twill safely guide us through.
