Calming the Storms of Life

 

When we look out at the world and all that is happening around us and to us; some might ask, “Why did God let all this violence happen; why did God let this pandemic happen; why does God let cancer and disease take our loved ones from us?”  
God acts from the Divine Principle of Love. Isaiah 55:8-9 ~ “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Divine Science minister, Emmet Fox, tells us we have mistakenly thought of God as a very big and wise person managing the world from the outside. God is Infinite Mind and we are made in His Image. But we have used our mental powers in the wrong way, causing fear and all kinds of error thoughts which leads to sickness, poverty, etc. The way to get rid of error thinking is to change our negative thoughts. Philippians 4:8 ~ “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
