Can You See Anything?

Blocked Vision

We were driving in a blizzard on icy Colorado roads. “Can you see anything?” I asked my wife, for my own vision was grossly impaired. Each time a car passed, an opaque spray from their tires obliterated my windshield until it could finally be partially cleared by our wipers. My lack of clear vision in dangerous road conditions had a huge impact on our progress. When the danger subsided, I began thinking of the parallel of this situation to our spiritual life. We live in a dangerous world, where spiritual vision is easily clouded by disturbing external influences. Unfortunately, many slide off the path and over-turn. Following the teachings and example of Jesus Christ can illuminate our precarious path while we sojourn on earth. We can be confident that we are staying in the safe lanes of the straight and narrow path. We can’t prevent the storms from buffeting us on every side, but we can know of a surety that we will arrive safely to our Heavenly Home if we follow the Savior and apply His Atonement. The scriptures promise: “This is the way, and there is none other way nor name” (2 Nephi 31:21).
