‘Even there …’

When we hear through the media of various disasters, I find much comfort in the Psalmist’s assurance “If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me” (Psalms 139:9, 10 ). We can prayerfully affirm on behalf of all those affected by such untoward events that God’s right hand, His omnipotence and omnipresence, is “even there,” right where the disturbing accidents or other adverse incidents appear to be. Despite the evidence of the material senses, God’s love is enfolding, caring for, and upholding all of His ideas in the undisturbed continuity of good.

Mary Baker Eddy writes, “This is the Father’s great Love that He hath bestowed upon us, and it holds man in endless Life and one eternal round of harmonious being” (Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, p. 77 ). Even when it seems that life has been lost, God is still maintaining the spiritual individuality and continuity of each of His ideas, because the man of God’s creating is as immortal as His creator. God is not only the creator of man, He is also man’s preserver. It is a great comfort to realize the spiritual fact that no idea can be lost or absent from the divine Mind that creates and maintains all ideas in their original, perfect, harmonious state.
