Walk in the light!

Posted by Elaina Simpson, C.S.

Our unceasing prayer is our desire to "Walk in the light." The below underlines are my own. :) Sorry for the delay, I have wifi now, as you can see!

"Prayer means that we desire to walk and will walk in the light so far as we receive it, even though with bleeding footsteps, and that waiting patiently on the Lord, we will leave our real desires to be rewarded by Him."

(Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, 10:1)

"If Truth is overcoming error in your daily walk and conversation, you can finally say, “I have fought a good fight . . . I have kept the faith,” because you are a better man."

(SH 21:1–4)

When we walk, we are never alone. We walk with God, divine Light, in the metaphorical footsteps of God.

"We walk in the footsteps of Truth and Love by following the example of our Master in the understanding of divine metaphysics."

(SH 192:27–29)

It's a right idea to walk with a sense of purpose and direction-- Looking to God.

"We must look where we would walk, and we must act as possessing all power from Him in whom we have our being."

(SH 264:10)

"Because you cannot walk on the water and raise the dead, you have no right to question the great might of divine Science in these directions."

(SH 329:7–10)

"Truth and Love enlighten the understanding, in whose “light shall we see light;” and this illumination is reflected spiritually by all who walk in the light and turn away from a false material sense."

(SH 510:9)

"Paul said, “Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Sooner or later we shall learn that the fetters of man's finite capacity are forged by the illusion that he lives in body instead of in Soul, in matter instead of in Spirit."

(SH 222:31)

One cannot walk forward while looking behind them. We walk in the direction of where we look! So where are we looking?

"...we must first turn our gaze in the right direction, and then walk that way. We must form perfect mode


ls in thought and look at them continually, or we shall never carve them out in grand and noble lives."

(SH 248:25–29)

Thanks for the prayerful walk!

Love,

Elaina
