Life is good! Do you feel that way when you get up in the morning? I hope so.
I was talking with a friend who mentioned he felt dread when he got up each morning. My heart sunk when I heard those words, because I see so much hope and promise when I arise each day. I see so much good ahead of me to discover, embrace and experience.
As I’ve learned in Christian Science, life really is good. It’s God, infinite good without end. Existence is about discovering more and more of God’s goodness and living it out with each passing moment. There is no end to how much good we can experience. It goes on forever.
The sensation of dread stems from an uncertain sense of existence. It’s an apprehension, or fear, about lies ahead. It disappears with an understanding that only God lies ahead!
As Jesus Christ proved, only good is coming our way from God. All evil will be conquered. Death will vanish. Sin will be destroyed. As we faithfully walk down the path Jesus has laid out before us, we get to where he led us—to pure spiritual consciousness that knows God as All, and evil is no more.
Pure spiritual consciousness is what lies ahead of you. One way or the other, Christ is going to get you there, and evil is not going to stop you from being successful.
What better time to embrace this reality than now! Only good lies ahead. Success is certain.
Yes, we all have trials and tribulations that test our faith, and even cause us to doubt at times, but Truth has the final say. Evil loses. Error gives up. God’s allness asserts itself, and our eternal safe place with God becomes apparent.
So, there’s no need to dread what lies ahead. It ends with good! Truth will get you through the trial of the moment and take you to something far better. Waste no mental energy on entertaining dread. Focus on the infinite goodness of God and let that be your reality. You’ll be far happier.
