As a former test pilot, I have had many opportunities to ask my Pastor for divine guidance in difficult situations.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5,6
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9
A contributor explores the power of God’s limitless love to support, sustain, and empower individuals and communities, even in the face of overwhelming and tragic situations. When we heard about the fires being battled in California, we immediately thought of this piece, which originally ran in the Christian Science Monitor.
"The 'still, small voice' of scientific thought reaches over continent and ocean to the globe's remotest bound. The inaudible voice of Truth is, to the human mind, 'as when a lion roareth.' It is heard in the desert and in dark places of fear." Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the
shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1 Continue reading the 91st Psalm.

"The healing power is Truth and Love, and these do not fail in the greatest emergencies." Mary Baker Eddy, Miscellaneous Writings
- "No matter what the situation is (whether it be a fire, flood, etc.), we are always protected by the love of God. And that is a very comforting thought! In fact, there are signs of God's care everywhere, even in what seem like scary and hopeless situations, such as these fires that we have been having. Firefighters are working day and night, trying to put out these fires, while other people are sheltering those who have been displaced from their homes by the fires - there are also other signs of God's care in these situations. So we should pray that those who are affected by the fires are safe and sound, and that they realize that they are - and always will be - under the protection of God." — Allen
- "In emergencies we tend to pray more than usual for divine intervention. Christian Science encourages us to stay in a constant state of communion with our Father-Mother God, always turning to God for direction, and listening for His angel messages as a natural part of our daily life. It's not difficult and doesn't take a long period of training. It's sometimes easier to do in emergency situations because we feel like life is out of our control, and we're already looking to God for answers. I find that if I quiet thought and listen (often mentally on my knees), I can feel God's love and be led to express love to others and to take whatever God-inspired steps are before me." — Kathy
- "Stilling the storm — wind and fire. Mrs. Eddy to Irving Tomlinson. “We should have the same control over the weather that we have over our bodies. I remember when I was preaching that on one occasion the sky became black and a flash of lightning was so severe that the soloist fell in a faint. I declared ‘ Let there be peace,’ and almost instantly the sun came forth.” MBE Christian Healer, p. 332. Mrs. Eddy was a peacemaker." — Melanie
