Trusting the Spirit

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!

    Just thinking about the trust the children of Israel had to keep circling the city of Jericho, and still the walls came down, not by brute force, but the power of the Spirit. Many walls have had to come down in my life, the bricks of my defenses so to speak, and still more to come down I’m sure, but it’s comforting to know there is a superior force guiding it all. Reminds me of the first sentence in the first edition of Science and Health “Leaning on the sustaining Infinite with loving trust, the trials of to-day are brief, and to-morrow is big with blessings.”

    Thank you for this: I find great comfort in how Christian Science allows us to prove that Spirit is guiding all!

    With all that the children of Israel had been through, their arrival in the promised land apparently did not give them the sense that they had “arrived.” For a time, they listened to God and worked in unity. Each of them had to be “Leaning on the sustaining Infinite with loving trust…” individually for that to happen, which means they all were doing their own work.

    It seems like only after they wanted others to take care of the work — such as judges, prophets, and kings — that they started getting into serious trouble. Contemplating this has helped me see why the unity at this church is so important: The only true unity happens when we are all guided by Spirit. Such a blessing and responsibility to be a member of this church!
