BOM Journal: 1 Nephi 1 & 2

1 Nephi 1 & 2

"Tender Mercies of the Lord are over all those whom He hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even onto the power of deliverance." 1 Nephi 1:20

Elder Bednar has given a powerful and memorable talk titled "The Tender Mercies of the Lord." April 2005 #GeneralConference, even our son quotes it to us.

  • "a loving Savior was sending me a most personal and timely message of comfort and reassurance through a hymn Selected weeks previously."
  • "Tender mercies of the Lord are real and that they do not occur randomly or merely by coincidence."
  • "often, the Lord's timing of this tender mercies helps us to both discern and acknowledge them,"
  • He says that the Lord suits His tender mercies to our conditions,

D&C 46: 15 "his mercies according to the conditions of the children of men."

  • "Tender mercies of the Lord are available to all of us” that “the Redeemer of Israel is eager to bestow such gifts upon us."

1 Nephi 2:17 - Nephi being the younger brother of Sam, and Sam still listened to him. I guess his other brothers didn't care enough to listen.
