From the May 1962 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The Psalmist must have been affirming his faith in spite of turbulent experiences when he wrote: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea" (Ps. 46:1,2). God is our refuge and strength in times of disturbance and confusion. Yes, God understood, obeyed, and loved is our protection, our comfort, our source of joy and of well-being.

Should one find himself facing threatening conditions, let him remember that at that very instant God is close at hand, much nearer and more available than any sense of persons or of things. There is no force nor influence that can prevent him from expressing divine intelligence. There is no mind other than the divine Mind, no counterfeit mind to postpone our blessings, impede our progress, or make us fearful, anxious, or discouraged.

At the present hour when men are fearful and a large portion of humanity is beset with trials and tribulations, anxious for the future, tempted by diseases and sins both subtle and threatening, the need is great that wrong thinking and its effects should be displaced by Christianly scientific thinking.
