HUMBLE TRUST IN GOD

Last year my studies at college seemed particularly difficult. Even though I enjoyed studying, I had to work hard to make up for deficits, or areas in which I was behind. Although during my course of studies I'd learned to let God guide me when I had to choose courses or solve complicated calculations, a certain pride had gotten hold of me. It was an "I can do it myself" attitude.

As my final oral exams came up, I put together a study plan. I knew that one week before the exam there was going to be a Pfingsttreffen (a weekend camp/meeting for young Christian Scientists during the Pentecost holiday, an official holiday in Germany), and I was involved with my local Christian Science youth forum in planning the weekend camp activites. I wanted to do my studying early, so I could give my full attention to the meeting. However, I wasn't able to keep to my scheduling. Although I knew from other times that the meeting was always a great joy and inspiration, it also seemed tiring for the organizers.
