a letter

Dear Children,
Life sucks.
As you grow up you might face anxiety, depression, illness, injury, and so on and so forth. If you don’t go through one of those then you will certainly face sorrow, despair, grief, guilt, temptation…….. and the list goes on. You will go through things that just wear you down and almost break you. You will experience great pain and suffering. And you will want to quit.
So basically, life sucks and there’s no stopping it. We face an adversary that is unbelievably good at what he does. He knows you and he knows what you can’t handle and he knows exactly how you hurt. He is the one wearing you down and breaking you. He is telling you that you cannot make it. He hates you and he wants to destroy you. And guess what? He can. And a lot of times we let him.
But do you wanna know the greatest thing? You don’t have to let him. You can defeat him. You just have to keep the truth in your life. It doesn’t feel like it now, but when we come face to face with our adversary we will see that he is absolutely nothing. He only has as much power over us as we let him. The real power and the real strength come from our Heavenly Father and Savior. They are the ones that provide us with happiness and strength and blessings.
When you are at your end and you want to give up just remember that you are blessed. You have people that love you. It doesn’t matter how many, but as long as you have one person that loves you then you are blessed. If you have ever experienced happiness then you are blessed. If you have felt the Spirit guide and comfort you then you are blessed. If you have felt the power of service and sacrifice then you are blessed. You are blessed. And you are strong. If you are better than you were yesterday then you are strong. If you aren’t better than you were yesterday, but you want to be then you are strong. If you have any part of you that wants to gain power of Satan then you are strong.

And at the end of the day, the good ultimately outweighs the bad. And as soon as you realize that you are strong and that you are blessed then all the bad doesn’t seem so bad because even though life sucks, it is also the most beautiful gift that we have. So no matter how hard it is and how bad it gets you don’t need to worry because you are strong and you are blessed. And Satan can never take that away from you.
