Strength in Numbers
"You will find it much easier to exercise faith when your faith is sustained by the faith of others as in the case that many physical tasks cannot be accomplished unless people combine their physical strength, so it is with many righteous desires."
-Drawing on the Powers of Heaven
My brother sent me this sweet quote the other day and it's been bouncing around in my head ever since.
So often I find myself striving to be the perfect mother, wife, and sister, and I want to do it all by myself. I forget that God often uses us to strengthen one another. He lets us learn and grow by combining both our physical and spiritual strengths. I am so blessed to have friends who buoy me with their faith when I am weak, and I hope that I can always be humble enough to allow God to use my strengths and compensate for my weaknesses.
