This quote was a helpful, healing thought shared with me when I was very new to my study of Christian Science. I have no recollection of what I was desiring at the time, but it has struck me as good advice ever since. I’ve consistently found that what God’s law brings to light tends to be much better than whatever I’d imagined I wanted in the first place!
As Jesus so eloquently put it: “This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply.” (The Message, Bible paraphrase)
And from Christian Science Founder, Mary Baker Eddy: “Desire is prayer; and no loss can occur from trusting God with our desires, that they may be moulded and exalted before they take form in words and in deeds.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures)
Waiting for our desires to be divinely righted before being fulfilled might take a little patience, but it can be well worth the wait!
