Be comforted—be strengthened

Divine Love brings a spiritual comfort that also gives us the strength we need.

Some years ago a friend to whom I was telling my troubles said to me, "The Mother-love of God comforts and makes comfortable all God's ideas." The thought helped me then, and it has helped me many times since. Comfort is not just a make-everything-cosy kind of word; it carries from its early background a hint of something much more than that. It is derived from a Latin word meaning to make strong. Comfort, then, can also strengthen us.

Before I knew anything of Christian Science, I had thought of God only as Father. Science has given me an enlarged viewpoint. God is whole, complete; so besides the strength of the Father He includes the comforting love and tenderness of the Mother. The Father-Mother God must have children. We are those children, His children made in the likeness of Spirit, God, as we read in the Bible.
