God’s protection in a flash flood

Mary Baker Eddy writes: “Good thoughts are an impervious armor; clad therewith you are completely shielded from the attacks of error of every sort. And not only yourselves are safe, but all whom your thoughts rest upon are thereby benefited” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 210). I am very grateful that spiritual intuitions, or God’s angel messages, are an always-present and practical help, and that they are with us wherever we go.

During the past year I had been wanting to attempt to summit Mount Shasta, the tallest mountain in Northern California. At the end of July, I had a couple of free days, and it seemed like the ideal time. I called a park ranger, who told me that the weather looked good for the days ahead and recommended the route I should take. 

Late the next afternoon I drove for over three hours before turning off on top of a well-maintained dirt road that would take me the final five miles up to the trailhead. I planned to spend the night in my car before attempting to hike up to the summit early the next morning.
