The Christ is ever present, and we can experience the benefits of its tender action wherever we are, no matter what.
It was the first time I was called to be a substitute soloist for a Sunday service at a Church of Christ, Scientist, and I wanted to do it well. On Saturday I decided to get my hair done, and as I was sitting under the dryer, my jaw began to ache. I prayed, and the aching subsided slightly, but by the time I arrived home it was really bothering me and I was finding it difficult to open my mouth very wide.
That evening things remained the same. I tried to practice my solo but was not very successful at getting much tone and could not open my mouth very far. I decided to pray much more diligently. I remained unafraid, as I had always trusted God and knew I could trust Him now.
