Cherishing God’s day brings freedom

From the February 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I am so grateful for Christian Science and to have our textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, to study along with the Bible each and every day.

One day I woke up and had difficulty getting out of bed. It was very hard to breathe and stand, and I felt pain in my back. When I finally made it into the shower, I stood there not moving much, praying and reaching out to God. I knew that this suggestion of pain and incapacity was from mortal mind, a supposed mind apart from God, and was therefore a lie. I declared that I was made in God’s image and likeness. I affirmed this truth about myself right at that very moment where mortal mind was presenting opposite claims about life as based in matter, not Spirit.

I had a busy day planned, and I found myself getting distracted from prayers, instead thinking about how to rearrange my to-do list for the day. I then stopped as I realized I didn’t have to rewrite my day because of this suggestion of illness. Every moment, God is expressing His perfect, wonderful, harmonious, purposeful nature. The Scriptures say, “In him we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28). I declared right then and there, “My day is God’s day!”
