“…[Divine] Mind measures time according to the good that is unfolded. This unfolding is God’s day, and ‘there shall be no night there.’” (Science and Health, page 584)
Our days are bigger and better and fuller than hours crammed into daylight. Our divine Mind’s measurement of time is according to the amount of good that is unfolding. And this revelation of goodness is God’s doing. He is the substance of our every moment and He is in control of its perfect expression.
Let go of the mortal mind’s need to count the hours and the days, to be constantly aware of the passage of time or, contrariwise, by its seeming delay and our impatience with it. A material sense of time is a mortal measure and so it is necessarily limiting. God’s time is a space for goodness to be revealed—in an instant or sustained in many moments, days, years. God Himself is in charge of this lovely activity, and it is always going on. Infinite good is already right here, right now, and God is revealing more of that reality each day.
So we can treasure this true sense of our day—look forward to each with expectancy, and linger in each as we are in it with gratitude. There is no night in God’s day; there is no stopping point for light and good, no shut down of His presence and power, no absence of His active Love. God’s day is His own expressive presence and there is no evil, no impatience, no disappointment, no loss, and no fear in a day that is full of Life, Truth, and Love!
