Where do we start—when we desire to "draw nigh to God"? Do we try to tell God something or do we listen better?
I had been struggling off and on with boredom and lack of purpose. One day when I was feeling particularly low, I turned to God in prayer, and these words came to mind: "Christ reconciles man to God, not God to man." I looked in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, to find the entire sentence, which reads, "The atonement of Christ reconciles man to God, not God to man; for the divine Principle of Christ is God, and how can God propitiate Himself?" Science and Health, p. 18.
After reading a little further, I found the whole concept of reconciliation illumined. I realized that so many times in solving problems I had attempted to reconcile God to myself by telling God what the problems were and asking Him to fix them for me. In other words I was asking God to enter the human realm and reorder a phase of it.
