Shining a light on the weekly Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly®

Christian Science

I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. 

Here the writer presents God’s solemn promise to guide those feeling uncertain about their future or purpose. Just as He led the Hebrew people through the challenging passage from Egypt to Canaan, God continues to illuminate His children’s pathway, removing obstacles and directing every step.
