Whenever I read or hear read the story of the raising of Jairus' daughter, I am reminded of a demonstration that came to me more than eight years ago. To me it was one of the grandest proofs of divine power that ever came into my life. I had been studying Christian Science for several years and had had some very good demonstrations, when I got into such a condition that it was difficult to lift my hand to my head, and the odor of cooking or anything to eat was disagreeable; the whole world seemed dark and repulsive. I though I must master this myself by will-power, not realizing God as all-power. My mother, however, happened to come to my home, and on finding such conditions, she began treatment in Christian Science at once; but the ailment seemed stubborn and did not yield. I lay on the bed in a stupor most of the next day, but with another treatment this was overcome. From that moment I knew I was healed, although this condition had been coming on for about two months.

I am thankful to God, and grateful to our Leader for the blessings I have received as I have grown in the understanding of this healing truth.
