A College Student Writes
Ordering Our Steps
"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord." Ps. 37:23; These words from Psalms took on special meaning to me one day when I was Planning a picnic for faculty and student friends during our college final exam period.
I was the only one in the group whose exams were over early, so the responsibility for organizing the event and directing other individual efforts fell to me. As the appointed day approached, several of my friends commented on how difficult it was to arrange a meal for a large number of people, and they expressed concern for me. I reversed this aggressive suggestion of lack of time, but only rather superficially, for I began to panic as I thought of all the things to be done with out much assistance from others.
At this point the above verse from Psalms came to me, along with several other passages from the Bible, in rapid succession. I was startled at the flood of quotations. These verses were a formidable challenge to the fearful thinking I had accepted as my own. I saw that sense testimony would have it that I was a scatterbrained female, and I determined not to be one! At once I got to work at mental housecleaning.
