"Many of you are now passing through physical, mental, and emotional trials that could cause you to cry out, 'But I have tried all my life to be good. Why has this happened to me?'
Now I wish to encourage those who are in the midst of hard trials who feel their faith may be fading under the onslaught of troubles. There seems to me no better answer to the question of why trials come, and what we are to do, than the words of the Lord Himself, who passed through trials for us more terrible than we can imagine. [...]
You and I have faith, that the way to rise through and above trials, is to believe that there is a Balm of Gilead, and that the Lord has promised, 'I will not forsake thee.'"
