God’s mothering love: An ever-present help

I’ve often felt comforted and helped by these words from Psalm 46: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (verse 1). To me, the idea of “refuge” includes the mothering aspect of God that Mary Baker Eddy perceived through her discovery of Christian Science. I have experienced God’s mothering many times. 

The psalm goes on to say, “Therefore will not we fear” (verse 2). Even in times when I am afraid, I mentally insist that God is in control, and that no matter how I feel emotionally, I know my divine Father-Mother (and yours) is with me, a loving guide and protector.

We'd love to hear from you!
