A Fresh New Start


I once read a very interesting news article about a land fill which had been the dumping ground for nuclear waste. The area became so toxic that it was closed off entirely and entry was forbidden. Thirty years later, a scientist was asked to investigate the land. He went in with a face mask, covered from head to toe with protective clothing. Much to everyone’s total surprise, the area was teeming with vegetation and wildlife. It seemed a miracle that such a wasteland could be entirely restored! Was this not undeniable proof of the restorative power of God, and certainly a clear example of the divine decree or “law of love, in which nature and God are one and the natural order of heaven comes down to earth.” (S&H)

If God can accomplish this wonder in nature, how much more so in the lives of men! So, to those of you who feel your life, your past, has been an utter shipwreck, Christian Science comes with the regenerating power of God — to heal and to restore! It offers the promise of a new beginning, a fresh new start! God will “restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten.”(Joel)

Each morning you have new opportunities, new ways in which to become of great use in this world! This is God’s plan for His beloved child (and that does mean you!), and His plan can never be aborted. When negative thoughts from the past swirl around, put them out! We live only in this present moment and we can declare all good exists in this ever-present now! Hold on to this inspiring passage from Isaiah: “Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. This people have I formed for myself; they shall show forth my praise.”
