Children of light, you are not children of darkness. Let your light shine. Keep in mind the foundations of Christian Science – one God and one Christ. Keep personality out of sight, and Christ’s “Blessed are ye” will seal your apostleship (Miscellany 191:10).
Ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light (Miscellany 206: 30).
Mary Baker Eddy
Inviting God into your day
I prayed to be receptive to God’s direction, knowing Him as ever available to help whenever called upon. This Bible verse came to thought, offering a model I could emulate: “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer” (Psalms 19:14). A peaceful calm replaced the self-determination I had been feeling.
With a greater daily awareness of God with us, we can view challenges as opportunities to acknowledge His active presence and its accompanying assurance that He “pours the riches of His love into the understanding and affections, giving us strength according to our day” (Mary Baker Eddy, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” p. 5). We can gratefully accept every evidence of these “riches of His love” as proof that He is causing and supporting our good intentions, setting them on a course guaranteed to be satisfying and fruitful.
Right intent directs our thoughts into selfless, productive channels. With God in our day, we are motivated not only to do the right thing, but to want to do it, sincerely and genuinely. His presence aligns our aims with their original purpose, to let His light shine through everything we say and do.
