‘Shelter in place’? Sheltered in God

“Shelter in place,” the instruction to immediately take shelter from a dangerous situation going on around us, is a phrase we hear sometimes these days. While it may be sound advice, my main job as a Christian Scientist is to be a healer, so I can’t be apathetic about praying for a better understanding of the spiritual shelter, the safety, that can bring tangible protection for everyone.

After an incident in the news a little while ago, as I turned to God, asking for a deeper understanding of how to be sheltered and how to help others find safety, I realized the first thing that I needed to do was overcome fear. One of my favorite Bible verses was great to pray with: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” (Isaiah 41:10).
