Adam Dickey, a member of Mrs. Eddy’s household, once wrote, “When an idea begins to work in thought, it furnishes therein all that is necessary for its establishment, expression, protection and nourishment”.
We had a wonderful experience recently which so clearly illustrated this truth...that when a right idea begins to work in THOUGHT, it brings with it everything needed for its concrete expression in our lives.
For a long time, we had been thinking of replacing my husband’s car. As we pondered the idea of buying another car, we realised that this would incur a huge drain on our finances, so the idea was repeatedly kicked into the long grass.
In the meantime, our younger son had been driving electric cars for several years, leasing them for 2 or 3 years at a time, and he was quite sure that this was the route we should be taking...leasing a new electric car. However, the required deposit was quite substantial, not to mention the monthly payments over a period of 2 years. But as we prayed about the situation, it became apparent that this was the right step to take, and the right time to take it. With our son’s help and guidance, we pinpointed the car that would meet our needs.
A Christian Science practitioner once said to me, “Only Mind’s placement and timing is going on. You can trust it”. And the timing of this purchase was nothing short of remarkable...during the week that my husband signed the contract for the lease on the new car, we suddenly received some funds from a totally unexpected source, which not only paid for the deposit on the car, but will also cover the 2 years leasing contract! As we rejoiced over this wonderful unfoldment of supply, I was reminded of these words from the Bible:
“Prove me now herewith, saith the Lord, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it”.
Not only were we blessed by this provision, but the old car went on to bless dear friends who were in dire need of a second car, this unfoldment coming at just the right time for them, too!
As we read in Science and Health, “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need”.
