God's Day

"The objects of time and sense disappear in the illumination of spiritual understanding, and Mind measures time according to the good that is unfolded. This unfolding is God's day, and 'there shall be no night there.' " These beautiful statements are part of the definition of "day" given by Mary Baker Eddy on page 584 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

These words brought release to the writer one day when she was struggling with a limited sense of time for study and work in Christian Science. She had risen very early in order to devote more time to learning about God but the time for her arrival at business came too soon. It seemed to her that her day was divided into parts or time: time for God, time for business, time for personal duties, more time for study, time for sleep. One unit of time pursued the other. Then, as these words by our Leader came to her, she saw that her day was not divided into parts, but that all of it belonged to God, not a part of it. All of the day is His in which to glorify Him, all His in which to prove His guidance and care, His all-power and presence!
