Your wisdom and understanding have inspired me for nearly 20 years. I'll never forget being a brand new seminary teacher and you and your wife took us out to dinner over Christmas break. You were interested in us and our lives. May the Lord bless you and your dear family with his choicest blessings! - Adam & Brenda
Ted, what a great article! I contemplated how often I have continued to plead for blessings already received, in different packages, than I expected. It's nice to have a former classmate remind of how the Lord often answers our prayers.
I too have prayed many years for a specific blessing for one of our children. Recently after again verbalizing this request, a sweet peace came over me, and almost audibly I felt, "Maybe this isn't what's best for her, only what I think is best. It was humbling. Now I ask that it come to pass, if it's what's best for her life and growth.
Thank you for this article. Philippians 4 is one of my favorites. I appreciate very much your words of faith and peace.
Thank you for that wonderful article. I plan to share it with a dear non-member friend.
This is one of the best articles I've read in a long time. It encouraged and lifted me and I'm deeply grateful for your thoughts and explanation of Paul's teachings. There are things I've been praying for over 50 years. I have renewed faith that the Lord is aware of me and that my pleadings are known and will be answered when the time is right. Thank you Paul Gibbons. You were inspired to share this.
Thank you. That's all, just thank you.
Thank you Bro Gibbons.
I have pondered on this all morning.
Echos so much of what Pres. Hinckley taught.
Elder Holland said: “Things will work out” may well be President Hinckley’s most repeated assurance to family, friends, and associates. “Keep trying,” he will say. “Be believing. Be happy. Don’t get discouraged. Things will work out.”
