1 Nephi 21:14

"But, behold, Zion hath said: The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me—-but he will show that he hath not."
1 Nephi 21:14

I think this is interesting because it is sometimes easy to think that God has forgotten us... that he isn't paying attention or something.  It is also patently absurd, of course... but still, easy to feel that way.  We look at whatever our current problems are, and they seem huge.  Even insurmountable sometimes.  We understand that God doesn't give us anything we can't handle... but we don't really *want* to handle the current issue, and can't figure out anything that we are really learning from it either. :) ... And in the context of this verse, it is even worse.  This is talking about the last days, when we know there is going to be destruction and calamity and hardship... a lot of it, and for everyone.  But even then... when our world is literally falling apart around us... even then, God cares, and he will show us that he hasn't forgotten us.  Let's not forget him either.  He is right here, available to talk to whenever we want to.  Let's take the time today... and stick close.
