Such a beautiful illustration of God's way of caring for His children was experienced recently that I relate it, believing it may prove helpful to others. In seeking a satisfactory adjustment of certain property, for fully nine months all available material methods were tried to no effect. It seemed impossible to realize in any way from it. During this time the text-book of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, was obtained, and thereafter was studied daily, together with the Bible.

Coming one day across the passage in Proverbs: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths," it occurred to us to drop all our planning and outlining, and to know that because God is All, only good could result. Once this decision was made, peace reigned. About a month later, by following the dictates of Principle, even when seemingly not wholly agreeable to mortal sense, the immediate result proved that God was guiding. Having moved to this residence, the first few hours of our occupancy revealed conditions which, had we not been there to discover and remedy them, would have caused serious inconvenience to any incoming tenants.

While working in the yard one morning and gratefully communing with God, the only power, I suddenly felt that I should stop working and prepare for visitors on their way to look at the property. I obeyed this very distinct command, and in about an hour I greeted two people who had searched almost the entire city for just what we had to offer. They had been directed to our place by what to material sense would seem an accident, but we know it was the divine law of harmony in its universal operation. Arrangements were soon completed and were more satisfactory to both parties than either of us had anticipated.
