God directs our steps

From the September 2000 issue of The Christian Science Journal

With my junior year in high school finally coming to an end, the question "What are you going to do with your life?" struck me, along with a feeling of fear and uncertainty. Yet I was so grateful for the wounderful lessons I had learned in Christian Science, and for the fact that I could "cast [my] burden upon the Lord" Ps. 55:22 and find the right answer.

Most of my friends were dealing with fear of the future. "What am I going to do?" "How am I going to do it?" "Is it going to provide for me?" Whenever I found myself worrying about these things, a passage in Bible came to mind: "In all thy ways acknowledge him [God], and he shall direct thy paths." Prav. 3:6. This brought to mind the simple fact that my future is in God's hands and there is nothing I have to worry about or fear. I just have to keep my thought in line with His all-encompassing love.

Whatever God wanted me to do, I knew that I would love doing it and be successful at it. I had been living in the Caribbean for a couple of years and had developed a love of the ocean and boating. I knew that I wanted to do something along that line, but I didn't have any idea what. I began looking at universities in the States, but could not find anything that was facused primarily on marine studies.
