Truly God is an ever-present help in time of trouble
Truly God is an ever-present help in time of trouble. This has been proven to me many times through my slight knowledge of God as taught us in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I would like to tell of the healing through Christian Science of a badly injured ankle.
While away in the country in the summer of 1910, one Saturday evening I had three quarters of a mile to walk over rough roads to catch the boat, and as it was dark my foot went into a hole and my ankle was wrenched, causing great pain for a little time; but I kept on the best I could, for I had to be at work in Boston on Monday morning. I had two hours on the boat before we readied the place where I was to take the train. A gentleman helped me from the boat to the train, which was only a few steps across a platform. When I got into the train I had to take off my shoe, and I was greatly filled with fear as to what I would do when I got to Boston, as I could not walk. I felt that if I could even telephone to a practitioner I would get help. Then the thought came to me of divine Love's ever-presence. and the pain grew less. The fear was gone, and I felt a great sense of peace and trust. I was no longer afraid, and I knew I could walk when I got to Boston.
As we were nearing Portland, where the train stopped for a little while. I put on my shoe, then stood up carefully, and by holding on to the scats walked up and down the aisle. When the train reached Boston I walked out with the other passengers, experiencing only a little numbness in the ankle. Monday morning I walked to work, my foot being perfectly well. Neither tongue nor pen can tell the good that comes to Christian Scientists by knowing even a little of the great power of divine Love, as taught in Christian Science.—M. J. Heron, Boston, Mass.
