To those beginning the study of Christian Science, and meaning of the omnipresence of God is a revelation, and presents a new and tangible idea of divinity. The notion of a humanized God enthroned in the center of the universe and ruling therefrom, is gone, and Christian Science has given the knowledge that we are ever in the presence of the infinite. On page 107 of our priceless text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says, "'God with us,'—the sovereign ever-presence, delivering the children of men from every ill 'that flesh is heir to.'"

God's unfailing goodness in every hour of trial had been revealed to me in Christian Science many times, but never more forcibly than in this particular instance. An attack of illness attended by high fever presented itself to the younger member of my family. I tried to see nothing but the perfect idea, and to know that the promises of divine Love to help in time of trouble were true and sure; but so tenacious was the belief that on the third day the sense of fear seemed almost to overpower me, and I decided to call for help. Still I knew that God alone could heal, and suddenly from the seeming darkness there appeared before my vision, as in letters of gold, the message that came to the psalmist of old: "Be still, and know that I am God." Almost instantly my fear vanished. God had spoken to me, and His word, "sharper than any two-edged sword," cut asunder the bonds of error. My boy was instantaneously healed. He at once arose and dressed with the exhilaration and gladness which a recognition of the Father's presence ever brings.
