Running on a full tank

A relative who felt things were not going well for her recently lamented that she was "running on empty." This vivid description of her mood stayed with me. Later, when I appeared to be bogged down with problems at work, I found myself acknowledging that I, too, seemed to be running on empty.

As a student of Christian Science, I had been taught to reverse discouragement by replacing it with the truth of man's relationship to God. Hadn't I read in the Bible, "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy"?Ps. 16:11; And I knew God as all-powerful, ever present, and always the basis of perfection. So how could distressing thoughts have a real source? They couldn't.
