God is “a very present help in trouble”

Working a job that often takes me hours from home and has me living on the road for days at a time, I occasionally find myself needing assistance when I’m in unfamiliar places or far from any town.  Fear or even panic can sometimes set in. 

It is during these times that I find myself most grateful for Christian Science—for learning about the ever-presence of God in my life. Daily, I work to know that God is guarding, guiding, and governing my every step. God is good, and only good, and I can take part only in His goodness. 

This goodness was proven to me on one of my recent trips when I was far from home and alone. While opening the door to my truck, I felt something bite or sting me harshly on the finger. I never saw what it was, but the pain felt almost as if it had severed my finger. Within a matter of minutes my finger became very hot and swelled to the point where I couldn’t bend it at all.
