God's Law Ensures Good Timing

More than ever, today's people are mobile. Some choose to relocate. Others find that enrollment in college, advancement in business, marriage, new opportunities in new areas, make changes of address desirable. Still others seem pressured to relocate by considerations apparently beyond their control—zoning requirements, termination of a lease, economic necessity, property claimed by eminent domain or destroyed by war.

In each instance right timing is vital. The executive wants to find suitable living quarters for his family when he assumes his new position. The college student and the wedded couple may want to coordinate employment with their new schedules. Refugees flee. Forced moves require quick solutions. Is perfect timing too much to hope for?

Christian Science assures us that ideal timing need not be exceptional but perfectly natural—the expected. We can be certain about this when we understand that God is divine Mind, the only Mind directing, governing, controlling, and coordinating the universe. The universe is spiritual and perfect, and expresses God's rhythm and harmony. Divine control is both merciful and just. Our understanding of these spiritual truths resolves human predicaments, including those that hinge on right timing.
