April 2021General Conference: Guidance for Singles
Every April and October, we members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints enjoy the immense benefits of general conference. We get to enjoy the guidance, direction, and instruction from the main prophet/president of the church, as well as other prophets, apostles, and inspired leaders. This represents the latest, most relevant inspiration for the members of the church. The will of the Lord is mainly shared through his prophets. We learn from Amos 3:7 that “…Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” We also learn from Doctrine & Covenants 1:38 that “…whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same.” Therefore, it greatly behooves all members to watch, read, or listen to each conference talk, and then heed and apply the ideas given. Accordingly, this article will review some select quotes taken from the latest general conference that can have particular application of relevance for single members. Enjoy!
April, 2021 General Conference Quotes:
*Remember Your Eternal Worth and Potential:
It is astonishing what we can learn when we look a little closer at our Heavenly Father’s plan of salvation and exaltation, the plan of happiness, for His children. When we feel insignificant, cast off, and forgotten, we learn that we may be assured that God has not forgotten us—in fact, that He offers to all His children something unimaginable: to become “heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ.”
What does this mean? That we will live forever, receive a fulness of joy, and have the potential to “inherit thrones, kingdoms, principalities, and powers.” It is so humbling to know that this magnificent and supernal future is possible—not because of who we are but because of who God is. Knowing this, how could we ever murmur or remain embittered? How could we ever keep our eyes on the ground when the King of kings invites us to take flight into an unimaginable future of divine happiness?
--Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “God Among Us”
