When the pastor calmed me

Recently, I had a wonderful healing experience. I had applied for several jobs, and received a call to come in for an interview. It had been a while since I’d interviewed in a formal setting, so I was somewhat nervous. I woke up that morning, read the Christian Science Bible Lesson as usual, and studied and prayed with the desire to really experience the presence of God. 

The week’s Lesson was: “Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?” It had many wonderful selections from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, the books that serve as pastor of The First Church of Christ, Scientist. I found many affirmations of God’s power and control, and of Mind’s government of His own spiritual universe. It also had the story of Jesus stilling the storm, “rebuk[ing] the wind, and say[ing] unto the sea, Peace, be still.” The Bible passage goes on to say that “the wind ceased, and there was a great calm” (Mark 4:39).
