One of the greatest blessings that has come to me through Christian Science, among an innumerable host of them, including many physical healings, has been the understanding that God's will is good and that only good can come to us from God,—that afflictions are neither sent nor permitted by Him and have no existence beyond false sense testimony. Having "endured a great fight of afflictions" before reaching that understanding, it may be helpful to some other student struggling under the same weight to know that it was through years of earnest seeking that I attained it.

Through weary months, while seeing the evidence of the love of God for others, the actual realization that it was for me too seemed hard to reach. With the ever patient, loving help of a practitioner, fears and erroneous beliefs have been destroyed; for as we read in Isaiah, "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it," and again in II Corinthians, "Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place."

To a mental and physical wreck, health has been restored. Fear of living—fears of every kind—are vanishing through the understanding of Christian Science. The realization that God is ever present, that His will is good, and that He is the unfailing Principle of all reality, destroys every fear and erroneous belief and brings the "peace of God, which passeth all understanding." The immeasurable gratitude I feel is being expressed to the best of my ability in daily, hourly striving to live nearer the example set us by Christ Jesus.
