Go with the flow

A sentiment in a popular hymn—Hymn 65 in the Christian Science Hymnal—ends with: “While grace for grace abundantly / Doth from His fullness flow” (Frances R. Havergal, adapted).

That word flow can be a helpful and healing concept. Stop for a moment just to picture glory, strength, and grace beautifully flowing and being expressed in you through reflection, simply as a result of God’s utter fullness. 

Christian Science teaches that what God possesses constantly flows freely to His creation. It’s not as if God, who is ever-present Mind, is separated from us and from a distance is conveying divine qualities. No, the kingdom of Mind is within, so the upwelling of goodness and love is continuous and presently tangible. Creations of God draw upon nothing less than divinely spiritual power and authority.
