I had a wonderful healing of sciatic rheumatism several years ago. I never before had such a realization of dwelling in the divine presence, and never experienced such joy as come into my consciousness when the most severe pain I ever experienced left me as quickly as when darkness disappears at the breaking of day. I had been for more than a month with my right leg drawn up so that I could not walk. The sciatic nerve felt the size of my little finger and seemed as if red hot. I had to sit bolstered up most of the time. When I would lie down, it gave me more pain. Finally the trouble settled about the heart and made it hard for me to breathe. The last twenty-four hours I suffered with it I could take but short, rapid breaths, as I could not expand the chest without increasing the pain about the heart. I was not conscious of holding any fear, but knew that divine Love would meet every need.

My wife had gone to the Wednesday evening testimony meeting, and I was sitting bolstered up in a rocker by a table upon which lay a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I opened it knowing it contained the healing word of Truth for me. I knew that this healing word had been spoken by a faithful practitioner, and I was endeavoring to bring myself into that state of consciousness where mortal sense could find no abiding place. When I opened Science and Health the first words my eyes rested upon were these (pp. 380, 381): "Every law of matter or the body, supposed to govern man, is rendered null andvoid by the law of Life, God." I knew that this word was spoken directly to me at that moment, and that the so-called law of matter which was trying to govern me was "rendered null and void by the law of Life, God." I knew that there was but one Life, God, and that this Life was my life by reflection, and was untouched by any mortal sense.
