The Christian Science Monitor

When the alarm went off I was already tired. All week I had been rushing nonstop to meet deadlines at work and to get my house in order for weekend guests. It was Friday and I had important work to accomplish by noon. The houseguests were coming that night.

I saw, then, that in the truest sense my strength came from God, Spirit—from the one divine Mind—not from a good night's sleep or a lively human mind or strong muscles. Here was an opportunity to prove it.
