Are there powers other than God? A recent experience proved to me the importance of knowing the spiritual truth that God alone influences our experience. 

One Sunday night, a friend met me for dinner, and while parking her car she commented, “I’m having a problem with my car, but I’m not going to get it fixed yet because Mercury is in retrograde.” 

I laughed and thought to myself, “What an odd reason not to get your car fixed!” We had a nice dinner, and I thought nothing more of it.
