"WHEN THE WINDS OF GOD BLOW"

"Then, when the winds of God blow, we shall not hug our tatters close about us." These words of Mary Baker Eddy's on page 201 of her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," came to a student of Christian Science while she was standing enjoying a fresh sea breeze coming through the open window of her house in a very hot country. And just as the wind blew away the heat from her warm face, the spiritual contemplation of this sentence blew away the heat of material ponderings she had allowed to weigh upon her thoughts during the day.

When in the quietness of spiritual light she began to analyze her thinking to see what had made her hug the tatters of negative, unfruitful brooding close about her, the student could plainly see it had been fear, or lack of faith in the omnipresence of God, good. Mrs. Eddy speaks of fear and heat as synonymous, and in the Glossary of Science and Health (p. 597) she defines "wind," in part, as "that which indicates the might of omnipotence and the movements of God's spiritual government, encompassing all things."
