2 Nephi - Chapter 22

The summary for this chapter says it describes the Millennial Reign of Christ.  There is no doubt this is true.  Still, as I read it I felt as if that "coming day" has already come for me.  So much of what it describes is what I currently enjoy.  I feel like His anger has been turned away from me, that I have been comforted, saved, that I am free to drink from the wells of Salvation.  The joy of my life is to praise and declare Him.

Twice, two different Stake Presidents have told me that if Christ were here he would likely be found serving at the Detention Center.  With humility and gratitude, I informed them that, "He is and He does."

6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion; for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

This is a 6 verse chapter celebrating our Savior. I am just beginning to comprehend how much He means to me, to my existence, to my family, to my life then here and forever. I realize I’m little more than an infant in his arms. How can I not put my entire trust in Him? How can I not praise Him, adore Him, and thank Him continuously? Oh my Savior, I know who Thou art. I am willing to be willing. I yearn to be faithful. I do trust the trusting. I fear…yet I want to step past the fear and just follow thee with enthusiasm and great joy!

You skipped Sunday so I'm a day ahead in my reading. Should I wait or will you catch up?

Yes, I did blow it. I got swept up in another trip and never found the time. Thinking about it I should have caught up, but now I don't have much time to do so. Will you forgive me if I don't?

Okay, I repented and got things caught up. Sorry for the consternation. I'll try not to let it happen again. Emergency or not.
