Ever Present Good

Early one morning a student of Christian Science stood high on a mountain side, enjoying the clear, pure air and the grandeur of the view. All about her the mountains, some covered with green forests, some all rugged and bare, lifted their noble peaks heavenward. Gazing upon them, the reassuring words of the Psalmist came to her: "They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever."

Down below, where the student well knew there lay a beautiful valley, could now be seen only a dense sea of gray fog; but this appearance gave her no anxious thought, for she also well knew that the sun, now appearing over the mountain top, would dissipate the fog and reveal the valley in all its richness and beauty. As she quietly watched, there appeared islands of green that soon grew into vine-clad hills; then came the fertile fields, the rippling rills, and the peaceful dwellings of the now fully revealed landscape.
