“Arise and shine forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations." That light comes from the Lord, and as you radiate that light, it will bless you as well as many others" (President Faust). Our Heavenly Father loves us, and he has given us this light that we may look towards it, and follow His path. The path may be long, with bumps along the way, but if we will trust in the Lord and endure with patience, He will help us. The Savior said, “I will also be your light … ; and I will prepare the way before you, if it so be that ye shall keep my commandments; … ye shall know that it is by me that ye are led.” I hope that we will remember the Savior always, not just in our times of trial and despair, because we are never alone. "I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.” I know that this promise is true, and that we are blessed in keeping the commandments of the Lord.
