Safe in the all-presence of God

Whether circumstances appear to afford us security or not, we can expect freedom from harm through an understanding of the divine Principle of safety.

When I was a young student of Christian Science, time and again at midweek testimony meetings, in the branch Church of Christ, Scientist, I'd been attending, individuals would stand and give glory and gratitude to God for being right there with them on the battlefield, or in the air, or on the sea. (This was during World War II.)

I was filled with awe and wonder as I listened to how confident these individuals had been under the most trying circumstances. How could they, I thought, be shot at, be in constant danger, and still remain cool and clearheaded? What understanding of God did they have that I seemed to lack? I needed to find the spiritual basis of safety, so I really began to search for answers.
