Inspirational Thought

"Perhaps our life in a loving premortal world set up our yearning for true, lasting love here on earth.  We are divinely designed to give love and be loved, and the deepest love comes when we are one with God.  The Book of Mormon invites us to 'be reconciled unto [God] through the atonement of Christ.'  Isaiah spoke of those who faithfully live the law of the fast and thus become for their own posterity a repairer of the breach.  They are the ones who, Isaiah promises, will 'build the old waste places.'  In a similar way, the Savior repaired the breach, or distance, between us and Heavenly Father.  He, through His great atoning sacrifice, opens the way for us to partake of God’s loving power, and then we are enabled to repair the 'waste places' in our personal lives.  Healing emotional distance between each other will require our acceptance of God’s love, coupled with a sacrifice of our natural selfish and fearful tendencies."

—Sister Neill F. Marriott, Abiding in God and Repairing the Breach
LDS General Conference (October 2017)
