Your life belongs to God

On a recent Saturday, I was rushing to get my morning chores completed. I was due at church to help prepare for the next morning’s Sunday service, and I needed to leave soon. My last chore was feeding the horses. As I was hurriedly cutting some carrots to add to the horses’ feed, I suddenly felt a sharp pain and saw some blood on the carrot pieces. In my rush to finish, I had sliced the end of one of my fingers.

I rinsed the finger but did not stop my activities. I immediately remembered something my Christian Science teacher had told me: “The bottom line is that your life is not just your life. It belongs to God. And God is bringing it about in the right way.” I had been thinking about that since he had shared it with me the previous afternoon. I had initially considered what it meant in relation to supply. In Christian Science, we understand that God is Life itself and that man is created in God’s image and likeness. As a reflection, or image, of God’s being, my life could lack for nothing. A spiritual sense of Life includes an ample supply, not just “getting by.”
