Let your light shine

When I started my training as a Christian Science nurse, I began to doubt whether I was well qualified for this work. Every patient deserves the best care, and I wasn’t sure I was capable of giving such care. I realized that while human compassion is important, a Christian Science nurse also needs spiritual steadfastness and the humility to give everything to God. I thought I might not be up to the task, and I also feared feeling responsible for patients’ well-being. So, I packed my things at the Christian Science nursing facility where I was to receive my training, and was ready to head home. 

The next morning as I was listening to God, wanting to know if leaving was the best thing to do, I looked out my window and saw a thick fog. I could not see what was outside my room; the fog was blocking my view. Then the sunlight broke through and gradually evaporated the fog, and I could see clearly what was outside. I felt this was an answer to my prayer, and I decided to complete this introductory course in Christian Science nurses training. The course lasted six months, and I finished it with joy in my heart.
