I haven’t written one of these in a long time! For that I should apologize. So, sorry. Apology over.
Anyway, I’ve been reading in Ether lately. More specifically, I’ve been reading about when the Jaredites journey across the waters (chapter 6). I had this sort of “ah-ha!” moment the other day and just thought I’d share it with you. Hopefully it makes sense, but it’s very possibly that my logic only works in my head. If that’s the case, then just smile and nod and pretend you understand me. Or totally ignore this post. Either way.
So, the Lord caused a FURIOUS wind to blow them towards the promised land (trials help us become the person God wants us to be) and sometimes they get BURIED in the DEPTHS of the SEA, but no water could hurt them (vs. 7 says “therefore, when they were encompassed about by many waters they did cry unto the Lord, and he did bring them forth again upon the top of the waters”). The Lord will always deliver us in the midst of our temptations and trials (if we “cry unto” him). He will not let us sink!
