Leaning, trusting, healing

When someone is introduced to Christian Science, the very first words he or she often reads about it are these: “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. vii).

Whether this is a new concept for you or one you have encountered numerous times, it’s worth it to take it to heart in a fresh, healing way. Notice how there are two parts to it—your part and God’s part. Your part is to lean on the infinite. God’s part, then, is to bless you.

You wouldn’t lean on something with your full weight if you didn’t trust that it would support you completely. Maybe you’d lean with reserve. Yet when it comes to God, trust—full trust—is what makes the best sense. To lean on what God, divine Love, knows about you, not just 50 percent or 60 percent, but all the way, is what really blesses.
