Our Trust is in God

Happy is he who at the beginning of a new year finds himself with his trust firmly placed in God. Happy is he who can say, I thank God my understanding is such that I can repose absolute confidence in Him, that I can place my full trust in His wisdom and power to direct all my footsteps through the days and the weeks and the months of the year which lies before me. Happy is he who has come to know God as Christian Science reveals Him, even as infinite and perfect Love, and so to trust Him implicitly.

One of the wonderful things about Christian Science is the certainty it gives of God's allness. To the Christian Scientist, God is verily the center and the circumference of his thoughts. In health he turns to Him, grateful for His goodness; in sickness he turns to Him, knowing that the right understanding of man's true relationship to the creator will heal the disease. In prosperity he rejoices in the affluence of Spirit and in the knowledge of the altogether spiritual nature of true substance; in adversity he clings to the Love which faileth not, feeling safe in the understanding of Love's comfort and eternal support. It is because Christian Science has given to its adherents the surety of man's perpetual unity with God that they are able to put their trust in Him at all times, and to rest secure even when the shocks of earth seem to be greatest.
