Straight and Narrow Path

"...because Jesus walked such a long, lonely path utterly alone, we do not have to do so. His solitary journey brought great company for our little version of that path—the merciful care of our Father in Heaven, the unfailing companionship of this Beloved Son, the consummate gift of the Holy Ghost, angels in heaven, family members on both sides of the veil, prophets and apostles, teachers, leaders, friends. All of these and more have been given as companions for our mortal journey because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the Restoration of His gospel. Trumpeted from the summit of Calvary is the truth that we will never be left alone nor unaided, even if sometimes we may feel that we are. Truly the Redeemer of us all said, ‘I will not leave you comfortless. [My Father and] I will come to you [and abide with you].' ” Jeffrey R. Holland, "None Were with Him," Ensign, May 2009, pg. 88.
Though this picture is not of a straight and narrow path I could not help but think of it. Let us always remember the lonely path that our Savior walked. Let us be mindful of the straight and narrow way and do all we can to stay on that path in the midst of life's trials and tribulations, storms and temptations of life. May we always feel the pure love of Christ, and may that love reflect in all our actions. May we be filled with charity, perform Christ like acts of service, study the scriptures, hold to the rod, and be prayerful in all we do.
