God’s voice brings joy and assurance

Many years ago, when my husband and I were expecting our second child, I prepared for the birth through prayer and often asked a Christian Science practitioner for treatment. 

In particular I studied what Mary Baker Eddy wrote in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures on page 463: “To attend properly the birth of the new child, or divine idea, you should so detach mortal thought from its material conceptions, that the birth will be natural and safe.” I was also learning that the only true creator is God, and that the baby was God’s reflection, His idea. To continue, I read: “Though gathering new energy, this idea cannot injure its useful surroundings in the travail of spiritual birth.” The birth proved to be natural and harmonious. 

We'd love to hear from you!
