I Have Compassion Upon You


American Scripture


Recognize that you are a beloved child of your Heavenly Father. He loves you perfectly and can help you as no earthly parent, spouse, or devoted friend can. His Son gave his life so that by faith in him and obedience to his teachings you can be made whole. He is the consummate healer.

Gain trust in the love and compassion of your elder brother, Jesus Christ, by pondering the scriptures. As with the Nephites, he tells you:

“I have compassion upon you; my bowels are filled with mercy. … I see that your faith is sufficient that I should heal you.”
