Put on Christ’s garment

From the January 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Mom zipping up daughter's jacket

Open your eyes to Christ’s living light. 
Divine Love removes the cloak of comparison, selfish ambition, and tattered human hope.
You are God’s child.
Lifted out of the dark pit of unrealized expectations, you awake to selfhood in Soul. 
Life isn’t a delicate balance of opening and closing doors—of human dreams and immortal ideas.
There’s only one Life, God, and it isn’t earned—it’s learned and discerned.
You don’t need to plead for it; you’re already one with it.
Cast off “Chaos and old Night,” and put on the glorious garment of Christ—Truth’s brilliant light.

—Lindsey A. Roder
