A Fresh Start

One of the many cheering aspects of Christian Science to the pilgrim who is striving to find his way out of the fog of materialism into the sunshine of spirituality is that there is no time, place, or circumstance which can prevent him from making a fresh start. Just where he is at the moment when the desire to do better comes to him, is the place to make a new start. No past failure, fear, disease, or sin can keep him from making a splendid new beginning. However difficult or muddled the past may have seemed, he can start at once to work his way out and up; and nothing can hinder his progress, if he be honest and in earnest.

The Bible tells us in the thirty-first chapter of Deuteronomy that "the Lord thy God ... doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee;" and we read in Mrs. Eddy's work, "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 347), these beautiful words: "Those who know no will but His take His hand, and from the night He leads to light." What greater comfort could any one have in an honest endeavor to make a fresh start, than to know and understand the ever-presence and protection of God?
