"Thy Maker is thine husband"

A Student of Christian Science who had been married but a short time was reading some letters wishing her happiness. A sentence from one letter ran thus: "I am so glad that you now have a husband upon whom to rely." The student was alert to the subtle suggestion which a well-meaning friend had unconsciously conveyed. Over a period of many years prior to that date this student had been compelled to rely upon God, day by day, for the fulfillment of every human need. It had been a joyous, precious experience. "I am not going to transfer my reliance now," she thought.

Isaiah saw a great spiritual truth when he wrote (Isa. 54:5), "Thy Maker is thine husband." In the light of Christian Science the word "husband" takes on new significance when it is spiritually considered, for it stands for a spiritual idea, and all true individuality includes this idea. What the human mind is pleased to call "husband" offers but a very limited concept of that idea.
