"WAIT PATIENTLY"

"Wait patiently for divine Love to move upon the waters of mortal mind, and form the perfect concept. Patience must 'have her perfect work,'" writes Mary Baker Eddy on page 454 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." A dictionary defines "patience" in part as "forbearance." We may all sometimes have wished in our daily life and contact with other people that we could express more patience, more forbearance with their faults and shortcomings. Christian Science, which is a religion of love, teaches us to wait patiently on God—to let God's will be done in us so that His purpose and plan, which are always good, may be revealed to us.

When we serve God and obey His will we may rejoice in patient waiting, expecting all good to come into our lives. In the fortieth Psalm we read (verse 1), "I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry." What a privilege to know that we have a loving Father-Mother who provides for man all that makes for his spiritual perfection. Thus He meets our needs, even before we ask Him.
