Let God be your guide in the world

The man in the minivan was lost, I could tell. He had passed by me twice already as I was taking a Saturday morning walk along the road in the wooded area in which I live. This time he stopped to ask, "Do you know where Fox Hollow is?" I knew exactly where it was and gave him specific directions. The relief on his face spoke louder than the words that followed: "Lady, you have saved me a lot of time and trouble. I sure appreciate it."

It's no fun to be lost, even momentarily. Yet people often do feel lost in this world. Is there a reliable guide to show us the way—one whose presence and unerring direction we can count on as we go about our days?

Yes. God, the all-knowing, divine Mind, is always present to guide us, and His direction is flawless. "As for God," we read in the Bible, "his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him" (Ps. 18:30).
