To me, Elder Lovgren's messages just get better and better. Here are a few things he said this week:
Fear, doubt, and confusion doesn't come from God and it's so easy to tell when Satan is trying to lie. Any fear or doubt in my heart makes me think it's just not true - especially in the house of the Lord. Satan's always trying to lie to us - he doesn't want us to be in the house of the Lord - he doesn't want us to feel good - he doesn't want us to have peace - he doesn't want us to be happy - he doesn't want us to progress. But being in the temple is the closest place I can get to God and Satan cannot be where God is.
It doesn't matter what other people think - it just between you and Heavenly Father. The whole time when people think they're failing Heavenly Father's right there with His arms open. He's full of love and peace and comfort.
This world is filled with amazing people. The Plan of Salvation is real. God has a plan for each and every one of us - it's unique to us. Everyone has something to contribute and to share, and it lifts others. The true and everlasting happiness that comes is from radiating the light of the Savior.
