The calm during the storm

Storms that bring rain, wind, or snow are not the only kind of tempest we face. Sometimes we have to deal with emotional storms, too. For example, we may be experiencing pressure at work, having family or marriage difficulties, or we may just be nervous or scared about an upcoming duty. Often we hear in the news media about the "storm of controversy" surrounding an individual or event. All of these have one common element—they would persuade us that man can be separated from the calm and peace that characterize God's nature.

Christian Science teaches that God is infinite, supreme good, and that inharmony has no place in His realm. The Bible provides plenty of examples of the peace that comes from God. For instance, the Psalmist writes, "He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters." Ps. 23:2. What a serene picture these words paint!
