Charity Never Faileth

I got a new calling at church last Sunday - Relief Society President. I, being who I naturally am, have quite a bit of anxiety about this in general, and about one lady in particular in our congregation that I anticipate I will be working with quite a bit. Previous to this week I've been worried that I won't be able to handle her, deal with her, or help her in a way that is both meaningful and acceptable to either one of us. That I personally won't have the patience and understanding she's going to need.

One day this week I was thinking about her and wondering what on earth I'm going to do, when I felt a great love and concern for her come over me. It was a very familiar feeling, one I felt quite often during all those years of seminary.

And now I know it's going to be okay. I will undoubtedly make some mistakes, just like I did in seminary, but it will be okay. And I know that I don't have to do this all on my own strength.

For that I am grateful.
