As I continued in prayer, Bible verses that assured me of God’s faithfulness in caring for His ideas came to thought:
As I considered these Bible verses, I began to think about how God’s faithfulness to His sons and daughters is like the faithfulness of an original governing its reflection in a mirror. The original never fails to govern the reflection, and the reflection can’t help being the expression of the original. It can never take on flaws on its own or act separately from the original. Neither can it be affected by something other than the original. So victimization, impact, and influence from without cannot touch the reflection of God. A line from a hymn then came to thought: “Faithfully to Him reflected,/ One with Him forever near” (Fay Linn, “Christian Science Hymnal,” No. 237).
