What's there to trust?

Not long ago I heard a news commentator say, in half jest, that while you can't trust the military, or people in high places even, or your minister, you can always trust your dog. I knew what he was driving at. At one point in my life I felt that the only one I could really trust was my dog Fritz. It's not that I didn't have friends or relatives who loved me, but Fritz seemed to be the constant. He was always happy and very loyal.

After I began studying Christian Science, however, I started to learn that God was a fixed Principle I could depend on. I began to see that I could trust Principle, God, because He was the cause of my being and was the source of all good. I was beginning to learn that whatever the difficulty seemed to be, I could trust God, really rely on Him, and as I understood Him more clearly, the situation would inevitably be resolved.
