I retired one evening in my usual health, but awakened about midnight with a great sense of illness, and it was only in a feeble way that I was able to declare the truth. Morning came and I had not overcome the trouble. It seemed impossible for me to read, so I closed my eyes and repeated the 23rd Psalm, knowing that every word was true and that Truth is all-powerful. A great sense of peace came to me, and I slept to awake in an hour well, and so thankful. The truth had healed me. This is only one of the many proofs I have had that Christ, Truth, does heal all our discords. "Harmony is universal, and discord is unreal" (Science and Health, p. 414), and it is therefore only temporary. It is such a blessed thing to know that we do not need to be ill. The gospel of peace comes to each one who will accept it, and what a comfort it is! It teaches us to be more charitable and kind and to look for nothing but good.

Words are feeble to express my great thankfulness for Christian Science, but I am trying each day to live it.
