“The lightnings and thunderbolts of error may burst and flash till the cloud is cleared and the tumult dies away in the distance. Then the raindrops of divinity refresh the earth. As St. Paul says: ‘There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God’ (of Spirit).” (Science and Health, p. 288)
The storms of life around us and the tumult in our thoughts can feel overwhelming. It may feel like we are in the midst of destructiveness. Fear and discouragement may overtake us, with hope seeming dim at the very least.
But just as the earth can look even more pristine and the sky more vibrant after a storm comes through, so we can see these darker hours as leading us to a resolving, a rest, a new outlook. We can be alert and thoughtful in the shadowy times, but unafraid. The mortal scene bashes away at us, trying to get our attention. But we are well-fortified. The noise and flash may be distracting, but it can’t harm us.
Let’s be serene in the darkness, because we know the light is at hand. The raindrops of divinity are God’s own inspirations, His loving actions, washing us and the world clean, opening the way to a new day. We can relax and accept the peace that is always ours, in both sunshine and in storms.
