God-Guided Life

There is beauty in a God-guided life.
There is wonder in the feeling of being led by God.
Try to realize God's bounty and goodness more and more.
God is planning for you.
Wonderful are His ways -- they are beyond your knowledge.
But God's leading will enter your consciousness more and more and bring you ever more peace and joy.
Your life is being planned and blessed by God.
You may count all material things as losses if they prevent your winning your way to the consciousness of God's guidance.
