Coexistence with the infinite God

Have you ever let some symptom or description of sickness develop in your thinking to such proportions that you felt like a young David facing a Goliath? When this happens, the problem sometimes seems so big that we may wonder how to go about meeting it. This is neither a time for broadcasting our troubles nor for seeking sympathy. It's a time for explicit scientific prayer, a time to quietly perceive and accept man's coexistence with divine Principle.

In Christian Science, God is understood as the infinite Principle of the universe. Man is His indestructible spiritual idea, or reflection, manifesting His goodness and perfection. Mrs. Eddy explains, "Man's origin and existence being in Him, man is the ultimatum of perfection, and by no means the medium of imperfection." Miscellaneous Writings, p. 79.
