From the May 1937 issue of The Christian Science Journal

On page 247 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy writes, "It is Love which paints the petal with myriad hues, glances in the warm sunbeam, arches the cloud with the bow of beauty, blazons the night with starry gems, and covers earth with loveliness." There is a great deal of joy and freedom to be experienced by the student of Christian Science in recognizing that God is everywhere. Whatever of genuine good is experienced is the manifestation of God.

God's law was manifested in the lions' den, in the fiery furnace, the raging storm, the journey out of Egypt, through the Red Sea, through the wilderness, preserving the sense of existence for those who trusted in Him. Christ Jesus said, "Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink," assuring his followers that their human needs would be provided for through active recognition of infinite divine Love, everywhere present. The Bible and our Leader's writings abound with assurances that there is no place where God is not, and that every manifestation of spiritual life, health, peace, and joy is an expression of His goodness.

To recognize God's presence while seemingly confronted by impassable barriers to happiness and progress, is a foretaste of eternal freedom. Such recognition is not only the privilege of the Scientist, but a requirement, if freedom is to be attained.
