Daily Inspiration, July 3rd

“The effects of Christian Science are not so much seen as felt. It is the ‘still, small voice’ of Truth uttering itself. We are either turning away from this utterance, or we are listening to it and going up higher.” (Science and Health, page 323)

Stop looking for evidence of God in matter and material circumstances. God’s saving, healing, loving presence is too large and lovely to confine to sense testimony. We limit His all-informing Love when we relegate His spiritual goodness to matter, to that which has nothing to do with His nature: pure and infinite Love.

The effects of our prayers and spiritual understanding are revealed to us through that gentle voice within, a feeling of well-being, peace, inspiration, goodness, and Truth. We are awake to this voice and it is speaking to us, to our hearts, with the good news and the assurance that heals, that can’t help but reveal that infinite good right where we are, in our bodies and our lives.

Don’t turn away from that voice. Don’t second-guess that feeling of Love’s promise that dawns upon thought and calms and assures and feels just right. Don’t negate that tender Truth felt within when the world wants to make you deny it. Stay loyal to the feeling, the still, small voice that came to you clearly and gave you peace. This is the effect of prayer and it is the very healing you seek. Know this. Trust it, and let yourself rest in the certainty that all is well.

    Thanks Laura!! That is so helpful. I love this quote: “We are either turning away from this utterance, or we are listening to it and going up higher.” It seems like there is a real temptation to turn away if it isn’t something we are ready to hear!!!! I have caught myself “turning away” when the voice wasn’t saying what I wanted to hear. It takes real discipline to turn away when the voice whispers something akin to “don’t eat the ice cream”!! Just an analogy but the lesson is in following the voice when we really know if is from Mind, and not a mortal temptation.

      I completely agree, Pat. The one that’s hard for me is “you are wrong about that.” It’s hard to give up our personal convictions, but yielding gratefully to that sweet voice, we give up only what never worked in the first place!

        I worked so hard to get those personal convictions, it seems a shame giving them up!! {:-))) But, slowly, slowly they give way to Love’s gentle nudging.
