But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance.
Rain falls in every life. I'm grateful for the sheltering arms and loving support of God when it rains. He chooses to bless us in so many different ways. Sometimes those gifts are subtle and perceived only through the spirit. One key to feeling a spiritual connection to God is to meditate quietly on the good things that have come into our lives. In doing that, you may recognize some small thing that blessed your life in an unexpected way -- the confidence expressed by a sweet grandchild, an opportunity to share testimony with someone about the truth, or a glimpse of the glory of God's creation. He is always near and accessible to us. We have but to reach out to Him and experience His tender mercies.
