Pray for Abilities

Being new to my Young Women calling I have found myself overwhelmed with all I have to do in addition to my other things I have going on. I came across this quote and felt like it was just for me. Maybe, it will apply to you to.

"Do not pray for tasks equal to your abilities, pray instead for abilities equal to your tasks."
Thomas Monson

That is so true! By Heavenly Father giving us these tasks, he is making us stretch ourselves and grow constantly. Sometimes I wish for a break in the growing department! ;)

I remember when he gave that talk. I LOVE that quote. You are set apart for that calling and there is a reason you are there right now.

Another quote I love says, "...the Lord does not ask us about our ability, but only about our availability. And then, if we demonstrate our dependability, the Lord will increase our capability." -Neal A. Maxwell

I think Heavenly Father must be trying to get my attention because that exact quote came to my mind a few days ago while I was feeling overwhelmed. Thank You for sharing!
