Holy sacrifice

Doctrine and Covenants 117:13
...and when he falls he shall rise again, for his sacrifice shall be more holy unto me than his increase, saith the Lord.
This was really comforting to me. I still worry about my mission from time to time, and about how I've done in other callings as well. Sometimes I feel like I have no "increase" to show for it. Seems like very few, if any, lives were changed because of my service. I need to remember that the Lord is pleased with all my efforts, whether or not they appear fruitful. They matter to Him. I felt the Spirit confirm that to me, and it felt great.
