“If Truth is overcoming error in your daily walk and conversation, you can finally say, ‘I have fought a good fight . . . I have kept the faith,’ because you are a better man.” (Science and Health, page 21)
Look kindly on your life. Are you each day yearning to know goodness better? Are you striving to think and act with more love in your heart? Are you learning more and more that feeling anything less than kindness, mercy, forgiveness, appreciation, patience, is not only ungodlike, it is uncomfortable and unfruitful?
Trust your journey to a more honest you. You were built to be God’s own expression—the very evidence of Love and harmony here and now. This is your true state of being and any mistaken sense of this, realized, is a learning process that contributes to your ultimate success.
Challenges may come. We may feel we are not good enough, that we have done things we shouldn’t have, or that we haven’t sustained good thoughts in every day. Take heart. If the Truth of Life and Love are becoming more real in your thinking; if the recognition of what truly is good and right is becoming more apparent; if you are having more love for good and giving error and evil less control and focus, you are doing much.
The overcoming can feel daunting, but it is where we truly discover and appreciate the glory of being a better man and woman, the one who God made and who is much more natural to us. By this daily awareness, we come to know the heart within us and the life of Love that would truly set us free—moment by glorious moment, day by glorious day.
