Often He withholds an answer, not for lack ofconcern, but because He loves usperfectly. He wants us to apply truths He has given us. For us to grow, we need to trust our ability to make correct decisions. We need to do what we feel isright. In time, He will answer. He willnot fail us. ~ Elder Richard G.
