"The Lord is my light"

Traveling recently to Ireland with her small son, a student of Christian Science was a little worried as to what sort of crossing it might be. Uncertain as to whether to leave the cabin in darkness, she asked the boy if he would prefer the lights left on in case he wanted anything during the night. Without hesitation his reply came joyfully, "Mother, 'the Lord is my light.' " Such assurance rebuked the anxious thought in the student's consciousness; and, as it turned out, there was a perfect crossing.

How readily mortal mind argues for itself, and how steadily we have to repudiate each false belief that endeavors to find lodgment in our thought! The mother had been healed of seasickness through the application of Christian Science, but the argument had come that even though she should be all right, the boy might need help. But his clear vision silenced the lie that threatened to destroy her sense of peace; it banished the anxiety, and filled her heart with gratitude and joy.
