Where's God when you're at school?

This may sound like a joke, but God can help you with your work whatever the subject is. My favorite subject this year is science. I'm learning about the periodic table, which is a chart of chemical elements. But I like to think of God at the top of this chart. Each element is pure—like God. And so are you, because you are a reflection of God.

I like to think of us as God's footprints. God puts us high on the bank of Truth. So we don't get washed away by error. When we follow God, we're advancing spiritually. And Mary Baker Eddy said to "first turn our gaze in the right direction, and then walk that way" (Science and Health, p. 248).

I've followed God, and it really helped. At school I had some problems getting my homework done. But I knew my intelligence comes from God, and I was comforted. Very soon I was able to get my homework done, and I was getting better grades.
