I spent the afternoon in the temple today. As always, it was awesome. A member of the temple presidency spoke to us. He mentioned 3 things that happen in the temple. 1) We receive instruction. 2) We make covenants. 3) We receive revelation. He said that most of the time when we receive answers to our prayers the answer is "I LOVE YOU. I CARE ABOUT YOU. YOU CAN DO THIS. I AM WITH YOU." I think that's pretty true. Because most of the time that's all we need to keep going. Most things in life aren't that bad. We make them bigger and worse than they really are. I feel like that answer helps us focus on the eternal perspective. It's so simple, but it does so much.
