Christian Science teacher Diane Marrapodi asks, "What are we left with when there are no words, or when words fail to meet the demand for comfort and healing, or when words are just, well…words?... When trials appear and 'there are no words', you can reliably trust the ever-presence of spiritual sense. It enables you to recognize and feel the love of God. You can know and see, with scientific certainty, that God is blessing you right now. "
Christian Science teacher Barbara Pettis asks, "Sometimes someone will ask us if we’re a pessimist or an optimist—do we see the glass half-empty or half-full? But a better question would be, are we materially minded, or are we spiritually minded?A materially minded individual tends to be one who thinks in terms of what is physically possible or impossible, whereas a spiritually minded individual will be more apt to think in terms of “with God, all things are possible.” What a difference these two perspectives can make! "
And People magazine has a health update on the doctor receiving care in an Atlanta hospital after returning to the US from Ebola-ravaged Liberia. I was touched by his plea: "As you continue to pray for Nancy and me, yes, please pray for our recovery. More importantly, pray that we would be faithful to God's call on our lives in these new circumstances."
All three will take you into a faith that goes deeper than a surface belief in God. They show a conviction and practice born of experience with God - of a growing spiritual understanding of Him and of unselfed love.
