The apostle John says, "He that feareth is not made perfect in love." When I began the study of Christian Science, I was so deep in bondage to fear that I seemed afraid of everything and everybody. I had an intense fear of death, and because of this would sit in my chair for hours at night, afraid to retire; but the understanding of God's love and presence immediately healed me of this fear, and I was able to retire and rest well. Again the apostle says, "Perfect love casteth out fear." I came to see that I had all fear and no love, and that this was the cause of my suffering; but I am glad to say that Christian Science is each day unfolding to me this "perfect love."

For years I had been dissatisfied with life and longed for something better. Each change that came I hoped would bring satisfaction, but I found no peace unitl I gained the right understanding of God as taught in Christian Science. Since learning even a little of how to love instead of fear God in times of sickness and trial, I have had that peace and joy "which passeth all understanding." When I took up the study of Christian Science I had an abdominal trouble for which I was wearing a support, and had undergone two operations without benefit. Soon after coming into Science, however, I was able to discard the support, and have had no further need of it.
