We needn't react to circumstances with anger, fear, or despair. We can express the spiritual qualities that are ours to reflect as God's children.
During a time of severe domestic upheaval, I was feeling tense and suffering from several physical ailments. Power seemed to be in the hands of others, and I felt helpless. As individuals expressed anger and frustration, I responded to these negative emotions and allowed myself to feel despair.
As a student of Christian Science I realized I needed to pilot my thought above the dark storm of charged emotions, and I diligently searched the Scriptures for solace. I also read from the writings of the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, a deeply Christian student of the Bible, Mary Baker Eddy. In her Miscellaneous Writings I found the statement "As many as do receive a knowledge of God through Science, will have power to reflect His power, in proof of man's 'dominion over all the earth.'" Mis., p. 183. I wasn't sure I needed dominion over all the earth; I simply wanted peace and a sense of dominion over my own emotions. Direction was needed, but I felt more like a ship at sea without a rudder, map, or compass.
