The One Time Physics Made Sense

Dear friend,

Why do bad things happen to good people? I've heard this time and time again (I've even answered this question before), and depending on my mood at the time I either want to roll my eyes or chime in with an amen! Nobody likes hard things that seem to gravitate toward our weaknesses and make life harder than it seemingly needs to be. But in the words of Linda Reeves: "What will it matter…what we suffered here if, in the end, those trials are the very things which qualify us for eternal life and exaltation in the kingdom of God with our Father and Savior?"
Don’t good people deserve to have eternal life? Don't good people deserve to be proven worthy of living once again in their Father's presence? I think so. Sometimes life happens, you know, when you wake up sick, and you have midterms, and you forgot to do laundry so you have no clean clothes except a grungy sweater, and you feel invisible (which might be good considering your outfit), and you're constantly trying to balance your stressful job with your stressful class load-- I think we've all been there. And we have the piles of unclean laundry to prove it.


With our runny noses and grungy sweaters we're going to pass this test with flying colors.

In physics I’ve learned an equation for life, this is what it looks like:

Now, I might not understand a lot about physics…so I guess it’s a good thing what I realized from this formula has almost nothing to do with physics. Sometimes we can feel this big, Sometimes it feels like we have no power or effect on anything. But physics says otherwise.

 Don’t let me lose you with this.

Time and power are inversely related to one another as you can see from the equation above. Rarely if ever do I feel like there is enough time or enough me to handle everything I need to get done. Just as I feel I have nothing more to give or I've gotten so small under the amount of life (represented in this equation by work...go figure) piled on top of me; I'm amazed to see the strength/power produced will actually increase.  

There are times when we feel small and it feels like nothing is going to get better-- after all, how can anything change when we’re stuck under a mountain of life? Something has to move mountains when you can’t. I’m convinced there is a variable missing from the equation up above. When you’re small and incapable of moving mountains, or elephants, or even a paper-weight on your own; Christ picks you and every heavy thing on top of you up and carries you. So don’t lose hope, as you get smaller the power your produce is greater because you have Christ on your side and you are more powerful than you think!

with much love,
Miss Mormon
