It is amazing how often what I read perfectly illustrates my life. I feel like the people of Nephi in this chapter. They have seen the destruction that their wickedness has caused, and they see just how much they have lost. Now they are put in the position of trying to recover from their own wickedness and relearning to turn to the Lord and trust in Him. They need to unlearn the disobedience which they learned and relearned obedience to the Lord’s commandments.
The good news through that is that the Lord has not cut off the Nephites at this point. If they return to Him, He stands ready to bless them. This gives me hope as I stand ready to turn to Him in my time of need.
