I find those words in many places in scripture. The context is usually that the world is a difficult place but we have not been forgotten and help is all around us. I do find solace in these words. But I feel there is a reaching needed to trust them. I suspect the presence of the Savior is not up high but still I feel a need to reach to feel him. Reaching puts me in readiness to receive. The support I need will not just fall on me. Arms outstretched shows I am acting. I am acting in faith that I can be of good cheer because he has not forgotten me.
And now behold, the Lord remembereth all them who have been broken off, wherefore he remembereth us also. Therefore, cheer up your hearts, and remember that ye are free to act for yourselves--to choose the way of everlasting death or the way of eternal life.
2 Nephi 10:22-23
I write on Fridays with a large group who inspire me. Only five minutes and without much thought to perfection. I write, prompted by one word that sends my thoughts to the keyboard and hopefully make sense.
