Waiting on the Road to Damascus

Emeline and I just watched Elder Uchtdorf’s talk from this last April Conference. If you don’t remember it, you should definitely check it out. I regularly think about the interplay between faith and knowledge and the talk hits on several points that are very important to me.

As we were watching I was reminded of an interesting quote by Lord Tennyson,

There lives more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds.

It also gave me a chance to look back through my own life and identify the ebb and flow of my own faith. One thing that I can testify of is that God is always there for us and that in my moments of doubt I have to take that leap of faith and trust someone else, be it a family member, friend or the prophet himself. Only when I make that leap do I feel my faith strengthened and see more clearly.

So, I’m curious to know how all of you feel about this. What are your thoughts?
