Chapter 7

~*~Finding Peace While Losing Pride~*~

“Pride just isn’t thinking that we are better than others.  It can also mean feeling that everyone else is better than we are.”

“Susan W. Tanner said, ‘You must do everything you can to make your appearance pleasing, but the minute you walk out the door, forget yoursef and start concentrating on other.'”

“I recognize how true it is that life often feels like a great pile of obligations, frustrations, and disappointments.  But the Lord is there, always the same, His arms still outstretched.  When we feel overwhelmed, we have to remember the peace He has spoken to us on previous occasions.  his peace brings comfort and strength; the world cannot give that to us.”

“His Spirit, like the Savior himself, is not sent into the world to condemn the world, but to lift us.  He is not interested in putting us down.  The gifts and the fruits of the Spirit engulf all our deepest needs, whatever our present desires: insight, flashes of guidance, energy, all the virtues that center in christ, and through them, all the fire that purifies our feelings and our aspirations. . . . Why do we think we can do it alone?  And why do we turn our back on him when we need him most? . . . The Savior has power to change us even when circumstances remain the same.”

“Jesus declared: ‘Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.'”
