Conquer fear with faith

From the July 2020 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The times we live in are full of change. But it is sometimes difficult to evaluate whether the changes are good or bad, since it can take months or even years to assess the outcome. 

This applies not only to nations but also to our individual lives. And living with uncertainty often leads to anxiety, especially about the future. We may doubt the continuity of harmony and progress, and fear that there are negative, destructive influences that could impact us. 

Overcoming fear is not an easy task, as it seems to be based on facts. What the physical senses perceive, or what the various media present, appears to be tangible evidence of the power of evil. But Christian Science shows that evil is not a fact; it’s a false mental suggestion coming to our thought. And how we respond to it has a profound effect on our state of mind and our experience.
