Always on the Track
Some years ago, during a period when personal problems overwhelmed me on every side, each day was a struggle. My efforts to lean on Christian Science in the midst of physical problems, mental depression, and family troubles were desperate. One day, however, a simple event gave me a new perspective.
At an amusement park my little girl wanted to ride a kiddie car that went around a course on a track. The ride looked harmless enough, but once she was in the car, she became frantic trying to steer the little car around the sharp curves and twists, madly turning the wheel at each bend in the "road." She got off the car dissolved in tears.
As I comforted her, I explained that the car didn't depend on her steering to stay on the track. I showed her that the car was attached to the track by a heavy cable and could not possibly fall off and all she had to do was enjoy the ride, as she did on many subsequent occasions. In turn, I began to see more clearly the truth of something I had been learning in Christian Science—that I, too, was safely "on the track," held perfect in God's love, and could never be separated from His love. I saw that my life was in God's control.
