Ascending in thought

How do you uplift your thought? It sounds easy enough—just pray, affirming spiritual truths for yourself that you know are helpful! However, I’m learning that actually rising above daily struggles can be quite an endeavor. 

Last summer I had the opportunity to travel to Peru with my DiscoveryBound National Leadership Council (NLC) class, a leadership council for high school students who are Christian Scientists and are dedicated to servant leadership based on the teachings of Christ Jesus. 

In the weeks leading up to our trip, various class members sent out inspirational emails, and throughout our trip we had “Christian Science practitioners of the day,” which allowed my classmates and me to serve along with our designated Journal-listed practitioner as spiritual workers for the class. I’d also been praying to feel inspired and know that God is supreme. I knew I could feel protected from any suggestions that something could interfere with my health or joy.
