"The Lord sees weaknesses differently than He does rebellion. Whereas the Lord warns that unrepented rebellion will bring punishment, when the Lord speaks of weaknesses, it is always with mercy."
Elder Richard G. Scott, "Personal Strength through the Atonement of Jesus Christ" Oct. 2013 General Conference
This quote has always meant a lot to me. It brings me so much peace to understand that the Lord is patient with me and my weaknesses. As long as we keep trying to follow Him, He will give us everything we need to succeed.
This is the kind of assurance that I need in order to keep trying even when I fail.
