I stumbled across Elder Richard G. Scott's talk, "The Sustaining Powers of Faith in Times in Uncertainty and Testing." And if ever there was a time that we were in times of uncertainty, now was it. I find that when I take these principles into action, my faith is increased and I am filled with joy. When I don't, confusion surrounds me.
"...never doubt the reality of faith. You will gather the fruits of faith as you follow the principles God has established for its use.
Some of those principles are:
• Trust in God and in His willingness to provide help when needed, no matter how challenging the circumstance.
• Obey His commandments and live to demonstrate that He can trust you.
• Be sensitive to the quiet prompting of the Spirit.
• Act courageously on that prompting.
• Be patient and understanding when God lets you struggle to grow and answers come a piece at a time over an extended period."
