“We need not trouble about the future . . . If we had been made acquainted with the trials through which we have already passed, we would have been discouraged. As it is, our experience has increased our faith. So in regard to our future. It is wisely obscured from our view. I know what my trials have been; I know not what they will be. On every emergency the Lord has given me needed succor. For this I feel thankful. . . . I could always see glorious blessings ahead” (Collected Discourses, 2:34; The Teachings of Lorenzo Snow, 196).
