The Gift of the Holy Ghost

Last night I lay awake in my bed, stressed about so many things going on in my life. I started to feel anxious, angry, emotional, and a little sad. In the midst of my mind running a million miles an hour, a gentle reminder from deep within stirred my soul, and comforted me. The Holy Ghost sent peace to my heart. My mind rested, and I was then able to sleep soundly and comfortably.

Elder Faust and Elder Wirthlin combined their thoughts into a wonderful quote: "...the gift of the Holy Ghost 'is the greatest guarantor of inward peace in our unstable world.'"

I am grateful for the gift of the Holy Ghost, and I testify that it truly does bring peace at the times when we need it most. I can't imagine life without this gift, and I can't imagine the fears and stresses that would overcome me if I didn't have the Holy Spirit's constant companionship.

I hope that we can all ask for and feel peace through the Holy Ghost in times of turbulence, and that we can share this knowledge with others.
