“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.
