Order in our lives
The Christian Science Monitor
It was nearly six o'clock in the evening, and I was finally starting home. For several months I had been caring daily for a loved parent. Waiting at home were my husband, three children, and pressing responsibilities. As I crept along in the traffic, I was wishing that I weren't so pressured with so many demands on my time.
I began to pray. I wanted some order and peace in my life. I asked God for a healing thought to uplift me. The words of a hymn came to mind: "Take from us now the strain and stress, / And let our ordered lives confess / The beauty of Thy peace." Christian Science Hymnal, No. 49. That was it! I wanted the strain and stress of daily living to be removed. I wanted my life to be ordered with the peace and harmony that God mandates.
Wasn't my life ordered by God? I was working unselfishly and lovingly as I cared for my family. Weren't my motives right? I wasn't seeking acclaim. I was doing willingly what was required of me as a wife, mother, and daughter. It had to be done, and I didn't begrudge any of it. But I needed an inner core of stillness.
