Spiritual Sunday: Your Sorrow Shall Be Turned to Joy

There are many kinds of sorrow and suffering:

• Self-inflicted suffering

• Suffering from infirmities of our mortal bodies and sorrow from separation by death

• Suffering that tries and tests us

• Suffering to develop our spiritual strength

• Suffering to humble us and lead us to repentance

• The Savior’s suffering and atoning sacrifice, the most important event in the history of the world.

But if our sorrow and suffering strengthen our faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ, “[our] sorrow shall be turned to joy.” (John 16:20.)
