Feeling close to God—remedy for fear

Is life without fear possible in today's troubled, often dangerous world? It all depends on how much we really know of God.

One day when I was in a store, a little boy near me started to cry and called for his mother. She came quickly to comfort him. She was shopping at a counter only a few steps away, but the little fellow had moved to where he couldn't see her. This made him feel separated from her. She must have understood his fear, for she lovingly assured him that she had always been near and had been caring for him.

Losing sight of his mother must have made the little boy afraid of what might happen to him. At times we each may feel as though we are separated from our Father-Mother God just because we can't see Him. Yet we can learn through Christian Science how to feel close to God and thereby allay fear. God, Spirit, is everywhere, including where you are. And He loves, protects, guides, and cares for all who seek His help.
