Following my induction into the Army, I found myself in a situation for which I felt completely unprepared in a world totally alien to my outlook on life. I was very much tempted to feel I was at the mercy of arbitrary human will, and often, to me, seemingly irrational orders.

During my initial eight weeks of training I held to the Biblical truth that God is in the still small voice, not in the earthquake, wind, or fire (see I Kings 19:12). Part of the definition of Mind which Mrs. Eddy gives in Science and Health helped to show me that I was under God's government and was not a victim of chance or human will (p. 591): "Deity, which outlines but is not outlined." I realized my job was to be an expression of God's affluence in the place of His appointing and stopped outlining where or in what type of position I should be.
