Up early for a special jog

5 a.m. The alarm rings. I jump out of bed and prepare for my morning jog. As I start, I pick up my Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and the Christian Science Quarterly. Quickly I find the quietest spot in the house, and I am off on my daily spiritual exercise.

The crisp air of God-inspired messages invigorates my consciousness. Gently guided by the study of the weekly Bible Lesson, I steadily explore the spiritual reality of being, which exposes the impossibility of life or intelligence in matter. I feel warmth, assurance, conviction, and joy within —the certainty that God is man's Life and Mind. My day's foundation has been built, and it continues to strengthen me throughout the busy day ahead.
