Seeking Direction In Business.

A lady clerk employed in an apparently successful business was offered

an opportunity in a new business, which, though much smaller and less

successful than the first, yet had rich promise in it for the future.

The salary promised was the same in either case. In doubt, she often

waited upon the Lord, and asked to be guided,--a whisper in her heart

kept saying, "Go," "Go." Constant praying kept it growing stronger and

stronger,--at last she decided to go, feeling it was the decision of the

Lord. She accepted the new position, was pleased, and often declared she

never desired to return. The old business in less than three years

decreased so that half of the employees were discharged; the rest had

their salaries reduced. The new business doubled in its extent, and her

salary was increased one-fifth.
