IN my journey through the wilderness of human experiences, the glorious fact has been proven to me that God is the true source of supply when we apprehend and faithfully apply our understanding of our relationship to Him daily, in every need. About six years ago I was suddenly deprived of a certain monthly income, which provided not only for myself and daughters, but also for the monthly payment on our home, which had been purchased under this arrangement.

For a few minutes after the news came, a sense of utter despair seemed to take away from me my knowledge of the allness of God. Through a wonderful physical healing, I had learned to study faithfully the Bible, together with Science and Health and other Christian Science literature, thus gaining a knowledge of the omnipotence of God which I earnestly endeavored to apply to my daily problems, with "signs following," and in these moments of darkness and disappointment I wondered who could help me in my need. Then suddenly the truth came to my consciousness that my supply would come not from man, but from God. Our Leader's words, "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need" (Science and Health p 494), comforted me greatly. I went to sleep, awakening in the morning refreshed and able to fulfil my duties that day, as I have every day since.

All my needs were met each month through my own earnings, nor did I ever want for a dollar, and the full reward of faithful trust and toil is now demonstrated. I have paid for a very comfortable home, and more recently have had the privilege of making a trip through the East, including the opportunity to visit our dear Mother Church. Many times I received special help from Mrs. Eddy's article, "Angels," in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 306). Her counsel that we should never doubt was held to faithfully when evil suggestions tried to enter consciousness from within or without. Another help was the article "Love Your Enemies," on page 8 in the same book.
