Awake with His likeness

Does this verse describe your waking moment each morning: "I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness"? Ps. 17:15; As you open your eyes your first thoughts can center on God, the flawless Principle of all true being, and your oneness with Him. Because He is completely harmonious, and you are actually His likeness, you can claim and bring out harmony during your entire day.

Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, writes, "God is harmony's selfhood." Unity of Good, p. 13; Each day is a gift to you from God, and it is your right to joyfully accept this gift. Most of us wake up sometimes with quite a different view—with sharp remembrances of yesterday's pain, sorrow, or mistakes, and with apprehension about today. If this sounds familiar, don't despair—there's a way out! And it's a healing way, which is available to everyone. You can awake—really wake up—a little more every morning of your life to the satisfaction of knowing what God is, and what you truly are.
