God's Divine Faithfulness

A student of Christian Science was recently faced with a problem of dissatisfaction. Although the Lesson-Sermons and the Christian Science literature were studied, and the church services attended, there seemed to be a lack of spontaneity and joyousness in her work which caused restlessness and mental and physical disquietude. Mortal mind claimed reality, and, assuming the guise of intelligence, argued that the student's days were filled with trifles and that the new locality in which she lived demanded that she perform them, and that there was no helpful or constructive work for her to do. For a time this argument seemed so logical that it laid the student's thought open to discouragement, which was followed by various physical disorders.

The sense of discomfort and unhappiness was so plain an indication of the need for active mental house cleaning that at the next Sunday service a humble prayer went up to God for help, and almost immediately the answer came. One section of the Lesson-Sermon for that day presented the childlike receptivity of Samuel's thought, which opened his understanding so that he was able to hear God's voice. Clearly Samuel's words rang out in the consciousness of the student, "Speak; for thy servant heareth." The absolute assurance came that the trusting, listening heart always receives the needed wisdom when it turns humbly to God, who is boundless, supreme wisdom.
