Only God Outlines

The wastage of time through futile, negative thinking is enormous. Much of this is willful outlining for the future for oneself or others, imaginative planning, building air castles, scheming, all quite outside the quality of wise foresight native to intelligent being.

A businessman had been offered by his company an attractive position in a city outside his homeland. It would necessitate, so it seemed, the removal of his home and family, with resulting disarrangement of long-laid plans. What should he do? He turned to Christian Science, as he had done in other problems. He was helped by a practitioner to see that the only sure way to be guided rightly was to look away from mere human reasoning, which, though sometimes helpful, is very often fallible, and to place his entire trust in God, Spirit. Mind. He was encouraged to search out the spiritual fact as to man's place in God's creation.
