Safe in the storm

The sky seems so much bigger when you’re in the middle of the ocean. Especially when it’s also the middle of the night. And that’s where I was: On a 30-foot wooden sailboat off the coast of Maine. I was sailing with eight other students, plus a teacher, as part of a week-long sailing trip. This was the first night, and we were taking turns keeping watch at the bow of the boat. 

It was an experience like no other: just the ocean, the stars, and me. I took the opportunity to read a metaphysical article from a selection we’d brought with us. The article was called “God’s Law of Adjustment,” and there was one line that stood out to me: “If a man were drowning in mid-ocean with apparently no human help at hand, there is a law of God which, when rightly appealed to, would bring about his rescue” (Adam H. Dickey, The Christian Science Journal, January 1916). As I read it, I felt reassured that no matter what challenge presented itself, God would lead us to safety. His love was completely reliable, and we were always in His care. I carried this thought with me through the rest of the trip, and it helped me overcome the many difficulties I faced.
