What was different between Nephi's view and that of his brothers? Why did they doubt he could build a boat? Why did Nephi believe he could build one? When I ancho myself and my thoughts to to the infinite being that made me, when I find strength in his "reaching hands" I find that I can find "a greater cord" to build upon.
(vs2) So great were our blessings of the Lord - I wonder how often I receive blessings and don't take time to realize where they came from. I've lived long enough to recognize that coincidences are not random acts. I know that as I reach out "to God's reaching hands" God, it is his love that anchors me.
