Love and Life can never be taken away

Have you ever wondered where all the love in your life has gone? 

Years ago I had several family members pass away during a short span of time. I felt I had lost all of their love with them, and life seemed like a mystery that was unsolvable. I also had become fascinated with death—the hows and whys of it all. I later learned, through the teachings of Christian Science, that these feelings of loss, fear, and confusion can be healed through prayer.

It was during this time that I began to study the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, more closely. This short sentence jumped out at me: “Mortal existence is an enigma” (p. 70). That’s exactly how I felt! My experience felt like a total mystery. But as I continued my study and prayer, it became clear to me that God is Life itself, and that man, God’s creation, is the expression of Life. The confusion that comes with “mortal existence” begins to fall away as our true, spiritual identity comes to light.
