“The Valley Shall Be Filled with Water”
by Gilbert Carpenter
Mrs. Eddy told me of a demonstration that took place, when the roof of The Mother Church was being put on. It did not rain for about sixty days. Finally, the milkman left word at Pleasant View that he would be unable to bring any more milk, since there was not enough water in his well for his cows, and they were drying off. The next day, however, he came as usual with the milk, saying there were two or three feet of water in his well, despite the fact that it had not rained. He asked the students who met him, if they were witches or prophets.
After telling this demonstration Mrs. Eddy said, “Isn’t God good? Oh! Mr. Carpenter, trust in the dear, good God.”
In II Kings 3:17 we read, “For thus saith the Lord, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts.” It would seem that Mrs. Eddy’s demonstration in the above case was a present-day fulfillment of this Scriptural prophecy.
