Take a Step Back

Kolob Canyon from New Harmony

I have driven I-15 between Salt Lake and California more times than I can count. For years I drove right by Kolob Canyon where the only evidence I noticed was the sign.

Now one of my favorite mini-excursions is to take the New Harmony exit and drive straight west for a couple of miles. Then I look back and this is what I can see. Majestic peaks that before I was too close to see.

Isn’t that sometimes like our own lives? We are too close to our problems or challenges to see the gifts and blessings that come from them. Take the New Harmony exit next time you are passing through–it is an amazing experience. And in your life, take a step back to allow yourself to take in the greater image. You will be amazed at what the new view has to offer.
