A Child's Faith

THE gratitude that I feel for the light which Christian Science has brought to me and mine is unutterable. When opportunities come for proving the efficacy of this Science. I am filled with wonder how I ever lived without it. The proofs of Truth's power are so sure and convincing that the so-called problems of daily experience are worked out with ever-increasing confidence and faith. Each one who is applying his understanding of divine Principle to these daily experiences finds inspiration from contact with the thought of a child, whose unquestioning acceptance of God's allness often brings immediate healing.

A few days ago my little girl, who is three, burned her hand badly. It was her nap time, and only her nurse, who is not a Christian Scientist, was with her. It was, therefore, with no prompting that she asked if she might say the scientific statement of being (Science and Health, p. 468), which she did, and was soon asleep. That was the last we heard of the burn, although the scar remained for a few days and showed the burn to have been severe. Unquestionably the child turned to divine Love for help, and her experience brought a lesson home to me.
