Sunlight to Warm the Soul
I testify that Satan only wins when we let him. No matter our situation, no matter how terrible or hopeless, we can always use our God given agency or free will to choose to pray to our Father in Heaven.(2 Nephi 2:27). "...for the evil spirit teacheth not a man to pray, but teacheth him that he must not pray. But behold, I say unto you that ye must pray always, and not faint." (2 Nephi 32:8-9)
As we seek for help and guidance through prayer, we can know what we must 'do.' By praying like everything depends on God and then working like everything depends on us, we will qualify for the companionship of the Holy Ghost to lighten our load and to lead us through the freezing winter, until we are brought to the warmth of the summer sun. I also testify the seasons are a testimony of things as they are to come. No matter how cold the winter, the summer will always come as we rely on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
