Where is your refuge?

From the May 1989 issue of The Christian Science Journal

At one time or another, most people have probably felt so troubled by a situation or another person that they've sought some place to escape to. A cat chased by a dog may scurry up a tree. A child bullied on the playground may hide during recess. There are certainly times when it seems logical, and often wise, to keep oneself out of reach of danger.

No matter what the circumstances are,
our refuge is always at hand. It's not a bomb
shelter, a life of solitude, a drug, or a drink.
It's the understanding that God, divine Mind,
is the only real presence and power.

But what about menacing thoughts and feelings, fears about sickness, sorrow, death, hatred, immorality? Where does one find refuge from or overcome such enemies?
