1 Nephi 10:18-19

"For he is the same yesterday, to-day, and forever; and the way is prepared for all men from the foundation of the world, if it so be that they repent and come unto him.
For he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto them, by the power of the Holy Ghost, as well in these times as in times of old, and as well in times of old as in times to come; wherefore, the course of the Lord is one eternal round."
1 Nephi 10:18-19

I like especially the part that says that if we diligently seek, we will find.  There is no chance of looking and looking, and never finding... we just have to keep at it.  God wants us to find him, and he also wants us to learn.  Sometimes the search teaches a lot.  I also like that the way is prepared for everyone.  That there is a way already there, already custom made for us by a loving and wise father, who knows us better than we know ourselves.  There is a way out of whatever dark places we lose ourselves, and a way back to our father's arms.  And it has always been so... God gives each of us the same blessings and opportunities, in that each of us, individually, has our way prepared... there is nothing that we can't escape from, nothing that we can't overcome... because God has built the way, made ladders out of every pit, and made bridges to every fountain of knowledge.  So, today... let's look for the opportunities and blessings that God has placed all around us. He has prepared the way; all we need to do is find it.
