Safe in the ‘secret place’

- Christian Science Nurse Notes

Being a witness to good, even when everything going on around you tells you exactly the opposite, is, to me, dwelling in the “secret place of the most High” (Psalms 91:1). In this secret place, one finds safety, calm, and only good, because one is bearing witness to God’s presence and power. 

And yet this place is no secret—it is readily available to all God’s children, all of us, every moment, everywhere. 

Mary Baker Eddy wrote: “The ‘secret place,’ whereof David sang, is unquestionably man’s spiritual state in God’s own image and likeness, even the inner sanctuary of divine Science, in which mortals do not enter without a struggle or sharp experience, and in which they put off the human for the divine” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 244).
