LOOK UP

Joseph Smith’s Vision of Discouraged Apostles [The Radiant Life, Truman G. Madsen, p.43]

I have read that Joseph Smith once had a vision of the apostles in foreign lands. He saw them standing together with their heads bowed down in discouragement because of the adversities they were facing. Because they were looking down, they could not see that the Savior was there, just above them, ready to help them if they would ask. All they needed to do was look up, but they kept their heads down. The Savior was weeping. It was said that Joseph Smith could not describe this vision without shedding tears himself.

I believe this is so true in our own lives. It is so easy to become so self-absorbed when we are faced with challenges. So caught up in how we are going to make it through that if we ever just took the time to slow down and "look up" we would find the answer right there in front of us. Definately easier said than done. I wish I could remember this all of the time.

I love this image and Joseph Smith's apparent connection with it. It is really beautiful.
