Rising in strength

Some years ago I had an experience that proved to me how effective Christian Science is in removing whatever obstructs our right activity. My husband and I ran a small business that required both of us to be there in order for it to run properly. One morning I awoke feeling ill with flu-like symptoms. I told my husband I wasn’t sure I would be able to go to work that day. He said he would try to find someone to fill in. Later he called to say he could not find anyone to help out on such short notice. 

It was then that I really went to work in Christian Science. I declared the truth about myself as God’s child, made in His perfect likeness, and denied the error that seemed to be presenting itself. As Mary Baker Eddy advises in the Christian Science textbook, “The physical affirmation of disease should always be met with the mental negation” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 392). I prayed diligently to know that I could be in my right place. In a short time I was able to call my husband and tell him that I would be in to work that day. As the day progressed, I realized that whatever the erroneous suggestion had been, it had vanished from my thought and therefore from my experience.
