One of the blessed wonders of Christian Science is its constant reminder that each of us is a precious beloved child of God.
The legions of the carnal mind would assault our spiritual innocence and worthiness by arguing to the contrary, and often in very subtle, yet fatal ways.
For instance, have you ever listened to an inner voice of harsh self-condemnation? Utterings like, “You idiot. You can’t get it right. You are doing it all wrong. You’re incompetent. You’re a mess-up. You’re doomed. You’re a failure…” and on and on. This is the carnal mind working overtime to separate you, in belief, from God’s love and care.
Don’t listen to it!
There is only one voice to give audience to, and it’s the voice of Truth.
Ask constructive questions like, “What is God telling me today? What does God know about me?”
Truth is God’s reminder that you are loved, worthy, competent, intelligent, able, and blessed with special gifts beyond human compare.
Listen to the voice of Truth, not to the voice of error. It’s a gift you owe yourself.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote,
“The effects of Christian Science are not so much seen as felt. It is the “still, small voice” of Truth uttering itself. We are either turning away from this utterance, or we are listening to it and going up higher.” Science and Health, p. 323
Don’t let mortal mind beat you up any longer. Shut it down, and go higher with Truth and Love. It’s more enjoyable up there.
