That I have waited till now to tell of the many benefits...

That I have waited till now to tell of the many benefits which I have received from the study of Christian Science is not because of any lack of gratitude. I think perhaps I was waiting for some striking experience, not realizing that, whatever be the error overcome, there is "proof positive" of the saving right idea and the ever-present help in trouble.

One afternoon I was occupied with a piece of work which I was very anxious to complete on the sewingmachine before it grew too dark to see, when suddenly the machine needle was driven through one of my fingers. To mortal sense the pain was intense, and for an instant I seemed to be losing consciousness, but at once the words of the "scientific statement of being" illumined my consciousness like a benediction, and brought me to a realizing sense of the absolute truth of the statement that "all is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all" (Science and Health, p. 468). I repeated every word of that immortal sentence slowly and carefully—waiting upon God. So busily occupied was I in thinking the truth, that I removed the broken needle, bound up the wound, and finished the piece of work without further trouble. I felt not the least sense of pain during this time, nor was there any soreness afterward.
