OVERCOMING STORMS

Men frequently speak of disastrous hurricanes or floods as acts of God. But can we picture the Mind we know as God torn by tempestuous thoughts or violent emotions? Do we believe that God has any part in destruction by whatever path it may seem to come? What kind of God would harass His universe with destructive forces which men know as adverse weather conditions? Certainly not God, who, the Bible tells us, is good and who is Love. There is not an element of injury in Love. It could not harm.

A dictionary defines "weather" as "state of the air or atmosphere with respect to heat or cold, wetness or dryness, calm or storm." And it defines atmosphere as "a surrounding or pervading influence." Then we may well ask ourselves: "What, as a beloved child of God, is my environment? Does God surround me with turbulent experiences? Does He encompass me without warning in dangerous floods?" How could He? It is not in His nature to be familiar with destruction.
