“Look, Mom. I’m the bread maker!” my young son said as he looked up at me.
Suddenly it dawned on me that whenever I made bread I pulled out all those containers and started scooping. He was trying to be like me. My feelings of frustration melted into love. I was so proud of him for trying.
As we got busy cleaning the kitchen I realized God loves us like that. No matter how big the mess or mistake we’ve made, God provides us with a Savior to help us clean it up and make everything all better. We can “be still and know that (He is) God.”(Psalm 46:10) We can put our hand into the hand of God’s and know, in spite of present realities, everything will be all right in the end - no matter what.
Christ promises, “Fear not, little children, for you are mine, and I have overcome the world, and you are of them that my Father hath given me; And none of them that my Father hath given me shall be lost.”(D&C 50:41-42)
