Thomas Paine said, “the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph”.
It reminds me of something Elder Benson said:
Some of the greatest battles we will face will be fought within the silent chambers of our own souls.
Do you ever get tired? I have to be honest. I’m tired. There are times, even in my incredibly blessed and unworthy state, I feel a little like Job. I haven’t lost my home, my job, my health, or my family, but those silent battles in my soul are draining. And being emotionally and spiritually drained, in my experience, is much harder than being physically drained.
Several months ago, one of my photography mentors gave me the assignment to make a picture that showed my personal perspective on my life as a photographer. This is what I came up with.
It reminds me that, because these silent battles are so difficult, the potential for something glorious is that much more sure. And with the help of my Savior, I’ll be able to win.
