Experiencing peace through Christ

From the December 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal

 I want to share with you an experience I know about, where the concepts of understanding, forgiveness, grace, and love were deeply accepted, and healing followed. The proof of understanding is demonstration, and this is living Christian Science. 

A woman I knew well had gone through many, many difficult years because of all the quarrels, misunderstanding, and tensions in the family. Also, her husband had a “short fuse” and would accept no contradiction. Very early one morning she stood in front of the open window of her bedroom, looking into the garden. She saw the slowly growing morning light. She heard the chirp and the rustle of birds between the leaves of trees.

She prayed with a deep desire for true peace, rest, and harmony for the whole family. For years, she had wrestled with these family concerns. Being a Christian Scientist, she knew that peace and harmony were not to be found in the mortal basis of belief.
