What does Spirit do in our lives?

From the October 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

At those times when we feel up against a brick wall—whether in a relationship, with a work issue, or with a health concern—what good does it do to realize and understand what Spirit, or God, is already and always doing?

Spirit is continuously emanating all goodness, harmony, purity, and right activity; and in truth, we’re all included in that boundless harmony. So this is what Spirit is continuously doing—this is the operation of Spirit.
