The one true desire

We gladly welcome your comments on our Forum and Bulletin Board but we do maintain the right to edit and/or take down anything we 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!

    David states in his psalm that he had one desire and that he sought after it, to dwell in God’s house all his days, to behold God’s beauty, and to inquire in his temple. I have found this very helpful when tossed about by many desires. To me it means to stay conscious of how close God is all the time, to open my eyes to see His goodness all about, and when I need guidance not to go with the innumerable and ever changing opinions that are so prevalent, but to listen to that spiritual sense which is devoid of human will and so rich with God’s blessings. Nothing gets me into more trouble than misguided desires. These need to be laid to rest, set aside, and the one desire to be sought, as David stated.



    Reading this immediately brought to mind the statement in Science and Health 261:4 “Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts.” Go to God only for everything and at every moment and be blessed.
