A man is lost in the woods, and has been walking aimlessly for days. No matter how hard he tries he cannot find his way back home. Suddenly, a lightning bolt bursts across the sky and lights up the night. In that single flash, the entire forest is lit up and he is able to see the road. The vision was momentary, but it was enough. He is no longer lost. It may take him days to travel, but he knows the way.
Sometimes, at certain points in our lives, events occur that give us a different clarity of vision. We recognize how great our mission is, how fleeting life is, and how little time we have left on this world. At that moment, we understand things from a very clear perspective. That is the moment to make life decisions. Lock in that clarity and use it to guide your life’s course. Even though things may become clouded again, at least you’ll know that you’re headed in the right direction. It may take time to arrive there, but at least you know the way!
