No Coward Soul is Mine


No coward soul is mine 
No trembler in the world's storm-troubled sphere 
I see Heaven's glories shine 
And Faith shines equal arming me from Fear 

O God within my breast 
Almighty ever-present Deity 
Life, that in me hast rest, 
As I Undying Life, have power in Thee 

Vain are the thousand creeds 
That move men's hearts, unutterably vain, 
Worthless as withered weeds 
Or idlest froth amid the boundless main 

To waken doubt in one 
Holding so fast by thy infinity, 
So surely anchored on 
The steadfast rock of Immortality. 

With wide-embracing love 
Thy spirit animates eternal years 
Pervades and broods above, 
Changes, sustains, dissolves, creates and rears 

Though earth and moon were gone 
And suns and universes ceased to be 
And Thou wert left alone 
Every Existence would exist in thee 

There is not room for Death 
Nor atom that his might could render void 
Since thou art Being and Breath 
And what thou art may never be destroyed. 


Some thoughts from Sister Wixom

Now we are relearning how well we knew Him...We knew Him then, but it is only through our effort that we will come to know Him here. 

When you invite the Spirit of the Holy Ghost into your life and you live worthy of it, it will always be with you.

Coming to know the truth comes with effort. And the more effort we give, the greater the reward. 

Our desires can conquer our frailties.

We do not walk alone. He loves us, and He knows us personally. He is involved in the very details of our lives, and at times we can feel His handprints on our backs as we walk the path.

We come to know the Savior when we allow Him into our lives...Our trials are no longer burdens, but blessings, because they paved the path that took to us Him.

Just know this: You do know Him, and if you ever question if He knows you, just ask.


Words that are true have a spirit.


What Hands Can Do

Holiness results from activity and not from passivity.


What It Means to Know Christ

Here are some beautiful thoughts by George W. Pace.

There is a great reason for being.

Let me share with you a way to imagine the Atonement that might make it more real for you. Suppose that you were to review your life with the Savior, the occasions where you broke the commandments. How would you feel? Just the idea would bother me greatly, because I feel so ashamed of my sins. Imagine how that guilt would be quickened by the presence of the Savior, how painful it would be to know that the Lord has really seen all of your weaknesses and your willful disobedience. What a heartbreaking experience! Particularly when you realize that there is no way for you to make amends for your sins.
Then, perhaps, your mind goes back to the account of the Lord in Gethsemane, of how he was so burdened with sorrow and the agony of suffering that drops of blood came from his pores. You realize that part of his suffering was to pay for your sins.
When I contemplate this, after repentance, something happens. I feel a new kind of joy and peace. I feel clean, changed. I find myself with a whole new nature. (See Alma 36:20–21.) I realize that this change is a result of his magnificent love and willingness to assume the pain and suffering caused by my disobedience. (See Mosiah 5:2.) And, oh, how I rejoice for that tremendous blessing!

The Lord is going to ask us to do things that are impossible to do—except through him! 

I believe he is saying he would like to put his arms around all of us and comfort and strengthen us. He would like to reach into our hearts, pull out the anxiety, sorrow, and concern, and instill in our hearts great peace, joy, and a realization that we are infinitely precious in his eyes.
