March 3, 2022 - He Loves Us

Early in the Book of Mormon, an angel asked Nephi a tough question: "Knowest thou the condescension of God?" Nephi answered with something he knew and something he didn't know: "I know that he loveth his children; nevertheless, I do not know the meaning of all things" (1 Nephi 11:16–17). Nephi's answer is a perfect statement for us to remember in times of trial. We don't know the meaning of all things. We don't have all of the answers to explain all of the tragedies in the world and in our neighborhood. However, we do know and we are sure that God loves his children.

John Bytheway, “When Times Are Tough: 5 Scriptures That Will Help You Get Through Almost Anything”


The world is increasingly stumbling into chaos. It's getting faster too. We see this in natural disasters which seem to happen every month somewhere in the world. We see this in wars (Russia / Ukraine) and in civil unrest. We see this in disease and illness (COVID, etc.).


And it all seems to happen at once.


Then, there's our individual chaos we each go through. From health issues to faith issues. We all have something, and most often, we have several somethings at once.


But through all of this, Heavenly Father loves us. He is not throwing all of this at us. He's allowing it to happen because He does not interfere with a person's free agency. But He loves us. He weeps when we weep. He smiles when we smile.



We do not understand the meaning of all things, but He loves us. He is our Father.
