Unavoidable good

I would have to say that the events of last year have brought me more clearly to the realization that even when bad things seem to be happening, good is really at work. 

I’m learning each day that actual reality is spiritual, not material, that human life is not a starting or stopping point, but an opportunity to learn what real life is, and that things are not always as they seem. One event in particular prompts me to say with the Apostle Paul that “I take pleasure in infirmities” (II Corinthians 12:10), and has caused me to consider Mary Baker Eddy’s statement on page 96 of Science and Health, in which she describes “interruptions of the general material routine” and “the breaking up of material beliefs” (p. 96). What at first felt like a personal disaster became an opportunity to see my life and my world in new and higher ways. Prayer took me there.  

We'd love to hear from you!
