What shall I say?
Have you ever drawn a blank while sitting at your typewriter, or stood before an audience, suddenly speechless? What makes it sometimes seem difficult for us to say what we want to say, the way we want to say it?
Christian Science lifts self-expression—whether written, spoken, or lived—into a different dimension by defining man as the expression, or reflection, of God. This makes self-expression represent God expressing Himself through man. And it's by consciously reflecting God, divine Mind, that we can feel able to say what we have to say naturally and easily.
Moses discovered something of this when God called him to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt. Where was he to find words to do justice to the spiritual presence and power he had glimpsed at the burning bush? He said in dismay: "O my Lord, I am not eloquent ...: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue." God's answer was immediate and conclusive: "Who hath made man's mouth? ... have not I the Lord? Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say." Ex. 4:10–12.
