1 Nephi 22:4

"And behold, there are many who are already lost from the knowledge of those who are at Jerusalem. Yea, the more part of all the tribes have been led away; and they are scattered to and fro upon the isles of the sea; and whither they are none of us knoweth, save that we know that they have been led away."
1 Nephi 22:4

I find it interesting that God led away so many people to different places.  I wonder if all of them went to their own "promised land" as Lehi and Nephi did.  God did all of it for a reason, of course... just as he leads us to different places in our own lives, and we learn lessons and grow along the way.  But these bigger things... moving groups of people, and the promises in the scriptures about them coming back.  You can't help but wonder how dramatic it will be, and if we will see the reasons plainly... and whether they knew the reasons all along, and have been waiting for this, or how it will all work out.  Nephi was one of many, and he knew the others were "lost" ... apparently in the sense that they were lost to the knowledge of the central group, not lost as in lost in the woods. :) I look forward to hearing the stories of how the others were led away as well... won't that be cool? :) I think also it shows something fairly simple, but that made me think today... nothing is ever lost to God.  We feel lost sometimes, and we are confused about where to go next, or what our ultimate goal is... but God always knows.  Let's remember to turn to him to find our way. :)
