A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on blessings, confession, god, history, nations, spirituality, and world

We are recipients of God's choicest blessings. We enjoy an abundance of material things beyond that enjoyed by any other nation in the history of the world; but unless we keep alive a realization that all these blessings come from God and are a part of our great spiritual heritage, they may crumble as ashes in our hands. "In nothing doth man offend God, or against none is his wrath kindled, save those who confess not his hand in all things and obey not his commandments." (D&C 59:21)

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on america, blessings, desires, fear, god, government, humility, memory, needs, prayer, problems, and remedies

In the 1940s while serving as the executive officer of the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives in Washington, D.C., I saw in a Hilton Hotel a placard depicting Uncle Sam, representing America, on his knees in humility and prayer. Beneath the placard was the inscription, "Not beaten there by the hammer and sickle, but freely, responsibly, confidently. . . . We need fear nothing or no one save God." That picture has stayed in my memory ever since; America on her knees in recognition that all our blessings come from God! America on her knees out of a desire to serve the God of this land by keeping his commandments! America on her knees, not driven there in capitulation to some despotic government, but on her knees freely, willingly, gratefully! This is the sovereign remedy to all of our problems and the preservation of our liberties.

Frst of all that I would crave as the richest of heaven's blessings would be wisdom from my Heavenly Father bestowed daily.

A Quote by ElRay L. Christiansen on blessings, death, eternity, fatherhood, gifts, glory, guidance, honor, indifference, laws, life, mercy, merit, salvation, and time

So this estate is given each of us to determine whether or not we will merit glory and honor "for ever and ever," or whether we will rebel and refuse or be indifferent and not comply with the conditions and the laws and the ordinances provided by a merciful Father for our guidance through life and our protection and our salvation and thereby, by so doing, deny ourselves the fabulous gift and blessing of eternal life. This life, then, is a time of "sifting," a time when the "wheat" is separated from the "chaff," a time of deciding who is who and where we will live after we die.

A Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox on blessings, day, fame, glory, and heart

Better than glory, or honors, or fame, (Though I am striving for those to-day) To know that some heart will cherish my name, And think of me kindly, with blessings, alway.

A Quote by Elaine Cannon on blessings, god, gratitude, life, soul, and spirituality

A life's record with God in the details can be a spiritual feast for our souls. When we count our blessings on paper, our gratitude soars. It is all so evident.

A Quote by Elaine Cannon on blessings, god, life, and soul

A search of one's life and soul will reveal the hand of God. The outpouring of his blessings come with our afflictions, not in spite of them. Afflictions be praised!

Take a hard look at those things, which we needlessly turn into burdens, when they were meant to be blessings.
