A Quote by James E. Faust on beauty, darkness, day, desires, earth, fatherhood, justice, life, obedience, order, and potential

Just as order gave life and beauty to the earth when it was dark and void, so it does to us. Obedience helps us develop the full potential Heavenly Father desires for us in becoming celestial beings worthy some day to live in His presence.

A Quote by James E. Faust on failure, god, good, people, power, society, and world

The priesthood of God has become the eminent power for good in the world. We are no longer a handful of people on the fringes of society. This great power for good has been entrusted to us, and we must not weaken it by failing in our responsibilities.

A Quote by James E. Faust on change, life, selfishness, and thinking

In recent years, many seem to have spent their lives protesting. Perhaps they have felt to do this because they have felt repressed or wished to bring about change or have acted out of selfish reasons, thinking that if they tore the house down they might end up with a shingle.

A Quote by James E. Faust on belief, hunger, inventions, joy, leadership, miracles, people, science, spirituality, and technology

What are most people hungry for? I believe it is spiritual and moral leadership. Increases in technology, scientific inventions, and medical miracles have been marvelous and incredible. But we must use them properly to bring us joy, and that requires spiritual and moral leadership.

A Quote by James E. Faust on divinity, faith, god, heroism, life, listening, pain, soul, and truth

Here then is a great truth. In the pain, the agony, and the heroic endeavors of life, we pass through a refiner's fire, and the insignificant and the unimportant in our lives can melt away like dross and make our faith bright, intact, and strong. In this way the divine image can be mirrored from the soul. It is part of the purging toll exacted of some to become acquainted with God. In the agonies of life, we seem to listen better to the faint, godly whisperings of the Divine Shepherd.

A Quote by James E. Faust on adversity, blessings, life, and time

One of the advantages of having lived a long time is that you can often remember when you had it worse. I am grateful to have lived long enough to have known some of the blessings of adversity.

A Quote by James E. Faust on day, divinity, preparation, and purpose

There is divine purpose in the adversities we encounter every day. They prepare, they purge, they purify, and thus they bless.

A Quote by James E. Faust on beginning, disappointment, failure, god, grace, life, love, sorrow, and weakness

In the many trials of life, when we feel abandoned and when sorrow, sin, disappointment, failure, and weakness make us less than we should ever be, there can come the healing salve of the unreserved love in the grace of God. It is a love that lifts and blesses. It is a love that sustains a new beginning on a higher level and thereby continues "from grace to grace."
