Ten years ago, when I seemed at the point of nervous prostration, I turned to God with an absolute faith that He does exist. I continually repeated the one hundred and twentyfirst psalm, which had always seemed to assure me of this fact. Not long afterward, without knowing why I did so, I found myself attending a Sunday morning service in a Christian Science church. Upon reaching home after the service I decided to tell a certain friend where I had been. This I did, and to my surprise the friend said she was a Christian Scientist. This friend lovingly told me about Christian Science and directed me to a practitioner. Since that day I have had many proofs of God's existence.

At one time, when I was using a sharp tool, it slipped, cutting away part of the ball of my thumb. Immediately these words of our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, came to me from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 261): "Look away from the body into Truth and Love, the Principle of all happiness, harmony, and immortality." This I did, and the bleeding stopped almost at once. There was no pain, no soreness, and I was able to continue using that hand as easily as the other. Within a few weeks the thumb was completely restored. The part cut off was about a quarter of an inch in thickness.
