Product Description

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. — Isaiah 12:2

A mother, struggling to cope when a family member is diagnosed with a devastating illness, finds hope and strength when her small daughter pulls her close and whispers, “Trust Jesus.” Those simple words form the foundation for Elder Jeffrey R. Holland's latest book, Trusting Jesus.

“Everyone meets affliction in mortality,” writes the author. “Everyone knows some sorrow. Everyone experiences disappointments, even despair, and looks for ways to bear up and keep on going. The answer for all times and all seasons is to 'trust Jesus.'”

This collection of some of Elder Holland's most memorable and powerful talks will inspire us to keep our focus and our faith on the one source of strength that will never fail us: Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Included in this collection are such classic addresses as “The Other Prodigal,” “He Hath Filled the Hungry with Good Things,” “Come unto Me,” “An High Priest of Good Things to Come,” “A Handful of Meal and a Little Oil," “As Doves to Our Windows,” and many others.

The messages gathered here will help us to remember His promises in all our days of trial and challenge. When our souls are spiritually depleted, we can trust that the Lord will provide us with the bread of life and the living waters. When we struggle to fulfill our callings, we can trust that He will sustain and support our efforts. When our lives are hectic and overwhelming, we can trust that the Lord will bless us with peace.

I have read it over and over. This great man is a master of words and sends inspiring and soothing messages to the heart, mind, and soul. He is a man of God who wants us to succeed. That another book of his messages was coming out to follow this one was one of the best things I had discovered in a long time!

Great messages for you

The most important thing this book can do for you is to remind you that Jesus loves you. Sometimes trusting in his overwhelming power is difficult in this wicked world and I'm so grateful for Elder Holland's powerful and clear messages. I highly recommend this book.
