Cheerful thoughts like sunbeams lighten up the darkest fears,
For when the heart is happy there’s just no time for fears. 
And when the face is smiling it’s impossible to frown,
And when you are high-spirited you cannot feel low-down.

For the nature of our attitudes toward circumstantial things
Determines our acceptance of the problems that life brings.
And since fear and dread and worry cannot help in any way,
It’s much healthier and wiser to be cheerful every day.

And if you’ll only try it, you’ll find without a doubt,
A cheerful attitude’s something no one should be without.
For when the heart is cheerful it cannot be filled with fear,
And without fear the way ahead seems more distinct and clear. 

And we realize there’s nothing that we must face alone,
For our heavenly Father loves us, and our problems are His own. 

How does the presence of the heavenly Father and Jesus in your heart help you to be cheerful in these difficult times?

We Must Trust God Even When God’s Answer is “Wait!”
