Accident avoided through divine guidance

One night a couple of years ago I was driving on a four-lane highway. It was raining, traffic was heavy, and I had already been on the road for an hour. With almost another hour left to go in my journey, I called a friend to help keep me alert. 

We did what we enjoy most—sharing spiritual ideas and inspiration. Our conversation was filled with ideas from Mary Baker Eddy’s writings, such as Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. One topic we discussed was the spiritual fact that all action is in reality under the control of God. I recall feeling a deep trust that man, as the spiritual expression of God, can never be restricted by material circumstances or fears. 

All of a sudden, so much water was thrown onto my windshield that I couldn’t see a thing. The windshield wipers, which had been going at top speed all evening, were not able to clear the windshield fast enough. I started pumping the brakes to slow down as carefully as I could, and without forethought I steered the car somewhat to the left.
