Emmet Fox E-Zine
THE CAPTAIN IS ON THE
THE world is not going to the dogs. The human race is not doomed. Civilization is not going to crash. The captain is on the bridge. Humanity is going through a difficult time, but humanity has gone through difficulties many times before in its long history, and has always come through, strengthened and purified. Do not worry yourself about the universe collapsing. It is not going to collapse, and anyway that question is none of your business. The captain is on the bridge. If the survival of humanity depended upon you or me, it would be a poor lookout for the Great Enterprise, would it not?
When you went to Europe on one of the great ocean liners, you never worried about your safe arrival-because you had perfect confidence in the captain. You knew that the Cunard or the French Line would not risk their ship in incompetent hands. When you woke in the night with the ship rocking you did not run up on the bridge and tell the captain to be very careful, or to mind what he was about, or to ask him if he was sure he knew the way. You stayed in your cabin and went to sleep again-because you knew that the captain was on the bridge. The captain is on the bridge. God is still in business. All that you have to do is to realize the Presence of God where trouble seems to be, to do your nearest duty to the very best of your ability; and to keep an even mind until the storm is over.
"Great peace have they which love Thy law: and nothing shall offend them."*
,. Psalm I19: 165.
Thinking along with Nona Brooks (Divine Science)
"Every thought that we think which is dependent on that which is not of God is a transgression of the law of God.
The law of God is love; every thought or deed that is unloving is sin, and is followed by suffering.
Healing means blotting out sin. There are many sins; it is a sin to doubt, to fear, to criticize.
The unkind thought that we think; the unkind word that we speak of another; any
darkness in our attitude; doubt, or fear - is a falling short, a missing of the mark.
As we free ourselves from this kind of thing, we are healed."

CAPITALIZE YOUR DISABILITY
SUCCESS consists in the overcoming of
difficulties. All men and women who have made a success of any kind have done so
by overcoming difficulties. Where there are no difficulties to be overcome,
anybody can get the thing done, and doing so cannot be called success. There was
a time when laying a telegraph line from New York to Boston presented many
difficulties. Then there was a time when doing that was easy, but laying the
Atlantic cable was a great achievement, because of the difficulties which had to
be overcome. Later on, marine cable laying became a routine business, but radio
across the ocean presented problems which for a time were insuperable.
Then those difficulties were overcome too. There are no personal problems that
cannot be overcome by quiet, persistent, spiritual treatment, and the
appropriate wise activity. If you have a personal disability that seems to keep
you from success, do not accept it as such, but capitalize it and use it as the
instrument for your success.
H. G. Wells had to give up a dull
underpaid job because of ill health, so he stayed at home and wrote successful
books and became a world-known author instead. Edison was stone deaf and decided
that this would enable him to concentrate better on his inventions. Beethoven
did his work in spite of his deafness. Theodore Roosevelt was a sickly child and
was told he would have to lead a careful retired life. He was a very
short-sighted and. nervous little boy. Instead of accepting these suggestions,
however, he worked hard to develop his body and became, as we know, a strong
husky open-air man and big game hunter Gilbert wrote Pinafore on a sick bed,
wracked with severe pain. The owner of a fashionable dress business in London
was the wife of a struggling clerk. He was stricken with tuberculosis. She had
never been to business, and had no training of any kind, and found herself
having to support a husband and two children. She started with nothing but good
taste in clothes and a belief in prayer, and is a wealthy and successful woman
today. She says, "I thought I would like to sell the kind of clothes I had never
been able to afford to buy."
Whatever you think your disability is---capitalize it. Your particular problem will always seem to be especially difficult, but spiritual treatment and courageous determination can overcome anything. Problems are sign-posts on the road to God.
Stake Your Claim

power, prosperity and health - and God expects you to be satisfied with nothing less. (Herman Wolhorn)
