Divine Love

Love is a wonderful word: it is one of the names of our Father-Mother God. The beautiful and inspired interpretation of "Hallowed be thy name" in the Lord's Prayer, which our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, has given us in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 16), is this phrase of praise—"Adorable One."

It is divine Love that heals, purifies, uplifts, gives us our daily supply, and ever gives us the consciousness of joy, freedom, and peace. It is to this Love that we turn for help in every need; and it is Love that ever delivers us from our fears and troubles, for Love is ever present; and Love cannot fail. The Psalmist, glimpsing the ever-presence, ever-availability, and all-power of God, divine Love, asked: "Whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there." He also declared: "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust."
