Building the highway of thought

From the April 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One morning I was feeling discouraged. Nothing I had been praying about seemed to be budging, and it felt as if so much work needed to be done! On top of that, I was exhausted and just wanted to stay home. However, I love serving others, and I love listening to God. I had a full day planned, including serving in the Christian Science Reading Room. I called a colleague and friend to support me in prayer and set out in my car. 

Listening to the weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson found in the Christian Science Quarterly—which includes readings from the Holy Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy—I trusted that my thought would be lifted. I’ve found that inspiration from the Lesson always has this effect.

One of the roads where I drove that day was being widened. Road workers were going about this task with great gusto, and had been doing so for several weeks. Huge piles of rock and stone and sand were being moved with amazing speed, gullies were being filled, and blasting was being done to clear the way. Large rocks were being broken up and made into smaller pieces to make a better support for the new road.
