In the presence of Love

From the March 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

 One recent day, as I considered all the healings I’ve experienced and witnessed through the practice of Christian Science, I noticed quite vividly a common denominator to them all. Each and every case, no matter what the trouble seemed to be, was primarily the result of believing the lie that man could be separated from God’s love. And every healing came at a point of fresh understanding of the eternal presence of divine Love, and man’s true identity as the expression of Love, forever one with God.

God, who is the divine Love that fills all space, leaves no room for anything unlike Love to be present anywhere. Although unhappy human experiences would seem to contradict this truth, we can still perceive through our spiritual sense the omnipresence of God, who is all good, and see practical evidence of it in our lives by healing what is unhappy. 

Early on in my study of Christian Science, the validity of its teachings, including the omnipresence of Love, was proved to me through many profound healings. The notion that evil is unreal was confirmed through demonstrations of the reality of God, good, which came to light as the result of consecrated prayer and gaining spiritual understanding. These healings proved to me that God’s love is the only real power governing our lives.
