Is there a decision to be made?

Some years ago when I was in a quandary, the words "There is no decision to be made" came to my waiting thought with the authority of law. When this statement is perceived in the light of Christian metaphysics, one discerns its spiritual basis: the scientific truth that God is the only Mind, not needing to decide, since He knows all. And I knew that I must see and understand God in this way and that such understanding would guide my human footsteps. I knew the omniscience of Truth had come to me to heal indecision, frustration, fear, and doubt. But how was I to demonstrate God's unerring control?

For several weeks I had struggled with a darkened view of my life and was eagerly searching for direction: whether to enroll at a university in the city to which I had moved or to return to my former home and employment in a distant state.

I had sought God's guidance in making the initial move, leaving a very successful work experience to go a great distance to a place unknown to me. The first year I was happy, and much good was accomplished. However, at the close of the second year there was a strong temptation to return, although there was no apparent reason for this feeling.
