Looking For Elder Holland Quotation


Recommended Posts

I recall in a General Conference talk Elder Holland said something to the effect of do we realize how much it hurts our father in heaven when we feel we can't trust him or go to him for comfort, or something like that? Does this sound familiar?

Found it!!

"I can tell you this as a parent: As concerned as I would be if somewhere in their lives one of my children were seriously troubled or unhappy or disobedient, nevertheless I would be infinitely more devastated if I felt that at such a time that child could not trust me to help, or should feel his or her interest were unimportant to me or unsafe in my care. In that same spirit, I am convinced that none of us can appreciate how deeply it wounds the loving heart of the Savior of the world when he finds that his people do not feel confident in his care or secure in his hands or trust in his commandments."

I am kind of a butterbrain but it is Elder Holland but it wasn't at a talk in General Conference, it was at a CES devotional that actually I remember quite well, given in 1997
