through a right attitude toward trials
God cares. To someone who was facing loss and grief, Mrs. Eddy wrote, "Divine Love is never so near as when all earthly joys seem most afar." The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 290; On another occasion she wrote, "Trials are proofs of God's care." Science and Health, p. 66; The author of these words didn't pen them in the remoteness of an ivory tower. They were wrung out of experience—proven time and again in the mission of her life.
Discovery that God is Love and is always with us is basic to Christian Science, which teaches that God cares for man. It proves that man is the beloved child of his infinite Father-Mother God, divine intelligence. If you are new to Christian Science, you may have to ask yourself to trust this concept as you mentally grapple your way out of old ways of thinking to a more inspired understanding of God's ever-present love and care. If you are an experienced Christian Scientist, the reminder of God's love as a profound and simple fact may be just the angelic thought needed to stir you to the first step out of a deep trial.
