"We once had a major decision to make. When our prayers left us uncertain, I went to see Elder Harold B. Lee. He counseled us to proceed. Sensing that I was still very unsettled, he said, 'The problem with you is you want to see the end from the beginning.' Then he quoted this verse from the Book of Mormon, 'Dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith' (Ether 12:6).
"He added, 'You must learn to walk a few steps ahead into the darkness, and then the light will turn on and go before you.' That was a life-changing experience from one verse in the Book of Mormon." ~Boyd K. Packer~
Isn't that the way of life...learning to walk a few steps ahead into the darkness and then the light will go before you? I think that this is an easier concept for me with smaller things. We have never experienced anything in our almost 24 years married that is the magnitude of cancer. I need to learn that this principle applies to the big things too, not just the smaller things. I need to learn to keep taking a few steps into the darkness and to dispute not because I see not.
