Finding the courage to leave abusive situation

It appeared I was in a marital situation that was disturbing and had caused me much unrest. No matter what prayers and efforts, it seemed to deepen. This had been going on for over a year in a marriage that was not right for me (physically and emotionally threatening and controlling).

The truths shared at the lecture "God is Speaking to You" actually directly revealed unmistakably that I did not belong there and within hours of this revelation I was catapulted out of that whole atmosphere. Learning to listen more and obey!

This lecture was very clear to "trust and obey" God. He is always speaking to all of us. I am very grateful and divine guidance is more tangible in my life. Getting beyong human fear and doubt, tune out the static, tune in to God's truth, listen and be sure to obey. He will not take us half way but all the way.

The Comforter removes fear

The Comforter is Divine Science. I get that. But, at the same time I didn't. I realize I haven't given much thinking into what exactly the 'Science' of Divine Science means. Actually, I have given this thought, but I was recently listening to the TMC Youth podcast #68 by Daniel Scott ( It really had a lot of amazing thoughts on the Comforter and the Scientific aspect of Divine Science. The ideas are so simple, but at the same time really powerful.

Divine Science is a science. It is practical, universal and always available. Since it is a science, it is a law working all times and in all situations. The law that 1+1=2 is and always has been there. Nothing will ever change that. We don't need to struggle to keep the law correct. Even if everyone on the planet were yelling that 1+1=3, it doesn't change the law. We don't need to fight to make 1+1=2 It always is. It is the law.

Then I asked myself why Mary Baker Eddy called this Divine Law the Comforter. The thought quickly came that there is no fear in science. Mathematicians do not go to war over the laws of mathematics. 1+1=2 regardless of the language or how the numbers are said/written. When you know and have demonstrated the law that 1+1=2 there is no reason to fear or be aggressive against the belief that 1+1=3. You know the law. You know what is true. You dismiss what is not true and never give the fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) another moment's thought.

This is the Comforter. While I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear nothing. (Ps 23:4) This truth, this law is unchanged and always operating. There is nothing to fight against. There is nothing to fear. As it says in this week's Bible lesson. "there is nothing left to be doctored"

This reminds me of a conversation I was having with a friend. The subject of fears came up. As in clowns, spiders, etc. She asked me what I was scared of and I could not think of a single thing. The Comforter is always here completely destroying fear of every kind. When I was in High School my dad was laid off from his job. Thinking back, I do not remember being scared even then. I was shocked. I didn't know what we we were going to do, but the Comforter was there. Divine Truth was and continues to be a very present help supporting myself and my family. Leading us to where we need to be.

It is so comforting to know that there is no supernatural battle going on between good and evil. There is only God and His perfect law, Divine Science.

God is the Comforter

The Sunday before Christmas I was up late working on the Sunday solos for church. When I finished, I went to bed, but I was feeling very uncomfortable and went back into the living room so as not to disturb my husband. I tried my best to pray but was not able to keep my thought focused as the material senses were screaming for attention--and it soon became apparent that I was either going to have to waken my husband and go to the hospital, or totally rely on Christian Science.

I chose the latter---and I believe that that choice was a contributing factor to my quick healing. I was able to get the phone and dial a practitioner whose phone number I knew and whose name came to my thought. It was hard to speak coherently but the practitioner began declaring the truth and also soon recognized who I was.

She called me back every half hour and by the third call I was able to tell her that I just couldn't get comfortable,--And she said with conviction--"God has given us the Comforter" and then she read the words to hymn 174.

"Like as a mother, God comforteth His children:Comfort is calm. that bids all tumult cease: Comfort is hope and courage for endeavor.Comfort is love, whose home abides in peace."
By the time she had finished reading that hymn I did start to feel "comforted" And she said we were going to be grateful and rejoice for God's healing presence and power and His great love for His creation.

When she hung up I began singing that hymn over and over to myself and thanking our Father-Mother God for His love and care--- and with that I fell into a peaceful sleep. I was healed.

I am so very grateful to God, for Christian Science, and for the selfless labor and loving support of the practitioner. I would also like to acknowledge that although my husband is not a Christian Scientist and expressed much fear when he found me, he knew I was receiving help from the practitioner and he supported my decision, and was also able to witness the healing power of Christian Science.
