Cherish The Desire

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    Yearning to have it in my heart that I am spiritual, was one of the most “challenging” hopes. I did not realize that to gain any ground in this I needed to simply and humbly accept the Truth that I am spiritual, and work from that premise to gain the needed understanding. I spent much time seeing myself as this mortal, who wants to realize my spiritual nature. And here Mrs. Eddy shows us in Science and Health, p13 that: “ If we cherish the desire honestly and silently and humbly, God will bless it,…..” I would have done better by being obedient to the Truth first.Instead I was going back and forth, holding on to the belief in material birth and declaring truths about man’s spirituality. Thank God for the discipline of checking thought and staying on the side of Truth,which I learned here.
