Although I have been studying and trying to live Christian Science for more than twenty years, I have had no personal experience of the healing power of Truth until recently. On a Sunday I awoke to find a physical condition which in the old, uninstructed thought called for immediate surgical treatment. I treated myself to the best of my ability, being in great discomfort, and went to church. About two o'clock in the afternoon, the condition being unchanged, I called on a neighbor and we discussed the situation. He promised to treat me at once and I went home. In a very short time relief came and was complete and permanent. The apparent trouble was stone in the bladder.

Looking back at this experience, what to me is particularly comforting and uplifting is the thought that at no moment had I a doubt of the power of divine Love to do whatever was needful for me, and there was no thought of fear, though to mortal mind the danger was very imminent.
