Peace

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." So sang the prophet Isaiah many centuries ago, and today the hearts of Christian Scientists rejoice in the same confidence in God's ever-presence and omnipotence. So today the Christian Scientist knows that as he keeps his thought imbued with the fact of God's allness he cannot be greatly disturbed by what our Leader has described as "the convulsions of mortal mind" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 201). This truth is to him a deep, underlying current in his consciousness, uplifting and sustaining him in the very midst of the raging elements of discord or disaster of every name and nature. It enables him to be peaceful, to remain unmoved by errors, or by the testimony of the senses, and thus through his understanding of reality to triumph over evil in whatever form it would try to assail him or others.

The alert Christian Scientist sees the wisdom, to use a homely proverb, of "making hay while the sun shines." He sees that he must daily drink in divine truths, that he must keep his thought constantly refreshed, that he may be at all times in possession of the spiritual understanding which is a deep well of living water, to be drawn upon when he may seem to be in the desert places of mortal mind or the wilderness of human experience. This will enable him to face every experience with calmness and dominion, certain that Truth will triumph.
