If I can maintain the same enthusiasm for the truth that I had when I first encountered it, after 20 years, then I will begin to see the fruits. No, 30 years, 40 years, 50 years. If I can still have that same youthful enthusiasm for truth as when I first heard it and learnt of it, then will blessings flow and be richly abundant. If I can make it to the end of days, with that same youthful enthusiasm for the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, then I will have made it. Then it will always be mine!
For that same spirit which doth possess your bodies at the time that ye go out of this life, that same spirit will have power to possess your body in that eternal world.Alma 34:34
