God’s guidance saves and heals

From the February 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

God has only one purpose for each one of us: to reflect Him through our individual expression. We are God’s ideas, and we dwell eternally in the one infinite Mind, safe from anything that might divert us from the sacred path that He shows us lovingly and wisely. And nothing is outside God’s reach and power. 

A few years ago, before I found Christian Science, and when I was in my first year of university, I woke up one morning with severe pain in my lungs. It was difficult to breathe. In my heart I knew that God always loves us and that His care and protection exempt us from every potential danger. 

I began to pray with the Lord’s Prayer. I would go into my room and study and think about the words in this prayer that Christ Jesus gave us (see Matthew 6:9–13).
