Who is familiar with Descartes third meditation that has time to help a college student?

At the beginning of the third meditation, Descartes argues he can trust his clear and distinct perceptions. Explain this argument. Also explain why Descartes argument for the existence of God is not circular. You help would be greatly appreciated
