I choose to believe because I have had many experiences where I know the Lord is there with me. Our 22-year-old son, Alec, just passed away a couple weeks ago. I truly believe that the other hard experiences I went through a few years ago, and the comfort that the Lord gave me during those times, helped me with this most recent loss. Life isn’t always easy, but the Lord is mindful of us and he will give us the comfort and strength to make it through any trial. During those hardest times is when I feel the closest to the Lord. I have heard his voice reminding me to “Be still." Having the knowledge of God’s plan brings peace to my soul. This mortal life is but a short time in that plan.
