You can take charge of your life

No one need think of himself as dependent on others for happiness, supply, and well-being. For Christ Jesus revealed the precise whereabouts of all good—"The kingdom of God is within you."Luke 17:21; And Christian Science explains exactly how to find this kingdom and put off dependency. It brings to light God's man and his God-given dominion, completeness, and freedom—the spiritual basis of well-being. Mrs. Eddy writes of this man that you and I actually are: "His birthright is dominion, not subjection. He is lord of the belief in earth and heaven,—himself subordinate alone to his Maker."Science and Health, p. 518;

Some people, convinced they just don't have what it takes, look to others to supply the good they think is missing in their lives. But when God made each one of us as His spiritual idea, He left nothing out—not one iota of health, ability, strength, fearlessness, intelligence, vitality, joy, substance. Whatever we need to bear Him effective witness is ours as His reflection. Mind's unlimited, complete, individual idea is never limited, incomplete, or dependent on other spiritual identities for its well-being. This is fact.

Mrs. Eddy says, "Wholly apart from this mortal dream, this illusion and delusion of sense, Christian Science comes to reveal man as God's image, His idea, coexistent with Him—God giving all and man having all that God gives."The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 5;
