The Way of Escape

"Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me." Ps. 139:7-10;

Thus sang the Psalmist, revealing the impossibility of our escape from God's loving care and the consequent possibility of our escape from anything contrary to God's bountiful provision for His children. This impossibility of escape from good and assurance of escape from seeming evil is part of the great message which Christian Science has brought to the human race.

The desire to escape arises from the belief that one is a prisoner. Prison walls may assume various forms: circumstances of birth, poor health, unpleasant environment. How is one to be liberated from such confining beliefs? There is only one way to manifest one's complete freedom from all such erroneous suggestions. It is to claim one's own true nature as the child of God, upright, free, and unconfined by the acceptance of any material suppositions.
