God does not look on the outward appearance (see 1 Samuel 16:7).

Though we are imperfect, He love us perfectly, Though we may feel lost and without compass, God's love encompasses us completely."
- Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"'Tis like the great stories Mr.Frodo, The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back in the way it was when so much bad happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing. This shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come. and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those are the stories that stay with you, That meant something even if you were too small to understand why. But i think Mr.Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folks in those stories had lots of chances of turnin' back - only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding onto something."

“Isn't it wonderful to know that we don’t have to be perfect to experience the blessings and gifts of our Heavenly Father? We don’t have to wait to cross the finish line to receive God’s blessings. In fact, the heavens being to part and the blessings of heaven begin to distill upon us with the very first steps we take toward the light. The perfect place to begin is exactly where you are now. It doesn't matter how unqualified you may think you are or how far behind others you may feel. The very moment you begin to seek your Heavenly Father, in that moment, the hope of His light will begin to awaken, enliven and ennoble your soul. The darkness may not dissipate all at once, but as surely as night always gives way to dawn, the light will come.”
- Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on: you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently, He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were going to be made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace."
- C. S. Lewis
