How Spirit dissipated the storm

In thinking about the weather, I often go back to what a friend once said to me about snakes. She said, "God made the snake but not the poison." I took this to mean that what God made is good, but He didn't make His creation harmful or destructive. God's creation is entirely spiritual, not material. God couldn't have made anything destructive, because God is only good. God certainly doesn't create destructive weather. So, whether we're praying about a disaster in our own community or about a national disaster, our prayers need to include the spiritual facts concerning the weather.

In the book of Isaiah the Bible promises, "There shall be tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain" (4:6). Mary Baker Eddy says in her Miscellaneous Writings, "We all must find shelter from the storm and tempest in the tabernacle of Spirit" (p. 362).
