Mortal Mind Can NOT Keep Me From God

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. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    I have been listening to the YouTube videos of Wednesday night testimonies. It is wonderful that the recordings just keep playing from week to week to week.

    One testimony referenced the article by Peter V Ross, Tranquility of Temperament, on our website. I easily found this article. The testimony also referenced a quote by Mary Baker Eddy. I was writing down the quote as I listen to the recording. This meant, listening, stopping the recording, writing, and then starting the recording over and over. I had almost completed writing down the quote when the YouTube recording changed to a different testimony meeting. I had not written down the date of the meeting I was listening to. Mortal mind immediately started to creep in. I tried to find the quote by searching an electronic file of Miscellaneous Writings but was not successful. I then said, “You can not keep me from this Truth.” I did an internet search on part of the quote and the entire quote popped up as the first search result. YEAH!!! Proof that mortal mind can NOT keep me from God.

    The quote is “A little more grace, a motive made pure, a few truths tenderly told, a heart softened, a character subdued, a life consecrated, would restore the right action of the mental mechanism, and make manifest the movement of body and soul in accord with God.” says our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in “Miscellaneous Writings” page 54.

    Mr. Ross’ article, Mrs. Eddy’s quote and yesterday’s calendar message, “Let us be thankful for health and competence, and, above all, for a quiet conscience.” by Izaak Walton are all reminders, to me, that I must keep my Christ-consciousness and not let anything ruffle my thoughts.

    Very grateful!!
