Close to God

One Sunday morning in church a beautiful solo proclaiming man's nearness to God was sung. In that peaceful atmosphere it was very easy to feel near to God, close to the source of all good, health, and happiness. However, not always do our daily lives provide us with a setting so conducive to feeling near to God. Sometimes, as in moments of distress or fear, we may feel very far from Him. We are liable to cry out, "Oh if only I could feel close to God, feel His presence with me!" thus echoing in modern phrase Job's plea, "Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!" Job 23:3;

We are assured in Christian Science that the desire to be close to God, to feel His comfort and healing presence, can be fulfilled in everyone's life at this particular moment, this day.
