“You can have clear faith in the ultimate outcomes at the end of the trail but still find vexing uncertainties in the steps immediately ahead. The Lord knows the end from the beginning and everything in between. You, however, function in the muddled, mortal middle.”
Neal A. Maxwell
I ran across this quote in my studies this week and love it. There are definitely times I feel the strain of functioning in the “muddled, mortal middle”. In those times I wish I could see the end of the trail. I’m a planner and I’d really just like to have some sort of outline for my life delivered to my door. Wouldn’t that be handy? I just want to know the basics; I don’t need details. Is that so much to ask?
I suppose it probably is.
So I will focus instead on “having clear faith in the ultimate outcomes at the end of the trail”.
