To Him that Hath

At every point in one's experience in Christian Science, there is much of grace and truth to rejoice over. One who is just approaching this Science for healing of mind or body has the joy of approaching, the wonder of seeing the gates of relief open, and the delight of taking the first step. From that instant on there is always some gain, of health or success or happiness, to accept and appreciate; and as he notes these points of light and turns resolutely away from the dark shadows of failure or discouragement, he finds the way illumined for further advancement, and soon gains new vantage ground.

It is not meant that anyone should evade or avoid difficulties or turn back from any obstacle actually presenting itself. It is only meant that he should absolutely refuse to dwell upon evil in retrospect or as a fact of experience. If there has been failure in the attempt to overcome any phase of error, this very failure belongs just as much to the realm of nothingness as the error itself, and should be so considered. Thus any difficulty will be regarded as a present point of attack, and so be contemplated only to be conquered.
