Eyes to see

Essential Takeaway: Bring on the ole lady glasses

I recently had an appointment with the eye doctor and the visit resulted in new glasses. I am now the proud owner of “old lady glasses” since I now need the ‘ole progressive lenses. It is nice to be able to see clearly and even nicer to read without difficulty.  At first, I complained about having to take the time to go to the doctor, pay for the glasses, have old lady glasses, and then go back and pick them up. My efforts were all worth it.

Sometimes, seeing clearly requires effort. I have been pondering the concept of seeing clearly and knowing Heavenly Father’s will. In D&C 43:6 He states “And this I give unto you that you may not be deceived, that you may know they are not of me.”  It is eternally important that we see clearly and know what is of God and what is not. The world feels upside down these days. It seems like we are living in the last days spoken of in the scriptures. Another verse in D&C 45:35 is one of my favorites. “And I said unto them: Be not troubled for, when all these things shall come to pass, ye may know that the promises which have been made unto you shall be fulfilled.” A loving Heavenly Father gives us the signs of the second coming so that we me know! He wants us to see clearly the things happening around us and understand what they mean.  How has Heavenly Father helped you see clearly?
