Can I get to the church on time?

You can trust every detail to God.

One Friday at eight o'clock in the evening, my wife and I were to attend our first business meeting at the church we'd recently joined. We also had tickets that same evening for a six o'clock talk by Jacques Cousteau, the famous underwater explorer. We desperately wanted to attend both events. My company assured me that I would be back from a week-long business trip in plenty of time to make it to the first meeting. As that Friday dawned, however, I was many miles off the Atlantic coast on board an aircraft carrier, and there were no signs that we'd be returning to port that day. The situation seemed utterly hopeless and entirely out of my hands.

I asked myself if prayer could help. I then recalled Jesus' assurance that "all things are possible to him that believeth" (Mark 9:23). Our Father-Mother knows our every need and supplies it, because God is unfailingly good and loves all Her children. I knew that this love included me and everyone on the ship. I felt absolutely confident that God was taking care of us all.
