Minute by Minute

A lesson recently learned in the practical application of the truth, as revealed in Christian Science, of the present reality of Life and its manifestation as perfect health, and the consequent unreality of anything unlike that manifestation, has been of such value to me that I feel this experience should be shared, perchance to bring a ray of light to some other pilgrim.

After an instantaneous healing of a condition considered incurable by the medical men, followed by freedom from chronic tonsillitis, like a cloud out of a clear sky a severe and most disfiguring skin disease quite suddenly appeared. With confidence, however, I applied to a Christian Science practitioner for help. Work was lovingly and faithfully done, but to my astonishment and dismay there was only very slight relief. In desperation I dropped my household duties and read Science and Health eight hours a day. Still there was no change for the better. As the months passed by, many unkind remarks as to the apparent failure of Christian Science to heal this case were by one means and another brought to my notice, so that I finally found, added to the burden of physical suffering, a sense of personal responsibility, feeling that it was my duty to prove that the power of Truth is indeed adequate to replace all blemishes with a manifestation of purity and beauty. And so day after day I made my declarations of truth, but the physical appearance remained unchanged and the extreme itching seemed to increase.
