Argue on the side of happiness

Healing Despair

In moments of heartbreak we need reassurance that God, our Father-Mother, remembers us, cares for us—and this comfort can be ours if we ask for it with humble expectation.

Praying aloud at a time of deep disappointment, I asked God to give me some sign of His love. Even in my anguish I remembered learning in Christian Science that God is infinite good and that He never leaves any of His dear children comfortless. Moments later the telephone rang. It was a friend with an invitation to dinner that same evening.

"I hope you don't mind last-minute invitations," she explained, "but I just now got the idea to call you." As she spoke, I knew this was no coincidence. God was showing me that I was not forgotten, that I was dearly loved.
