The gospel isn’t about avoiding trials, it’s about healing from them.

I was at a fireside recently where Brad Wilcox mentioned this in passing and it stood out to me.  Often we pray for the symptom of the trial to go away, that’s our focus, but the gospel isn’t there to take away the pain, so much as it’s there to heal us from it.  The Atonement doesn’t remove the cup from us, it helps us pick up the pieces.
