Listening for God—needs met

I remember many a night crying myself to sleep, wondering just how I’d feed my three children the next day. I was a single parent, a high-school dropout, with no job, no long-term home, no income, but with the highest expectation and no doubt that God was leading me each step of the way to live by my highest sense of right.

Each day, as I prayed with my children, and as we passed our Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, around the breakfast table to read the weekly Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly, we learned, and confirmed, that God was caring for us. I knew that somehow, even if I didn’t know how, each of our human needs would be met.

On the wall of our branch Church of Christ, Scientist, was written (in gold!): “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.” That’s from page 494 in Science and Health, and the next sentence is: “It is not well to imagine that Jesus demonstrated the divine power to heal only for a select number or for a limited period of time, since to all mankind and in every hour, divine Love supplies all good.”
