When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

We Belong to Eternity

“Whereas the bird is at home in the air, we are clearly not at home in time – because we belong to eternity.” 
(Neal A. Maxwell)

What a beautiful thought for me today.  It reminds me that I need to take steps to help me on my journey home.  He reminds me that it is OK to feel as if I don't belong.  It is OK to want to do better and go farther. He reminds me that my time here is not the only time I have.  I don't belong here.  I am not comfortable here. I belong to my Heavenly Father.  I belong in eternity.  He has made me His and that is amazing.  So, when trials find you in your journey, remember that you were not made to fail.  You are made to soar, far into the eternities of time.  You are made to endure, to carry on, and to become.  You are made to be His.  And that makes the entire journey worth the fight, worth the struggle, and worth the journey.
