Before taking up the study of Christian Science my concept of God was very vague, and likewise very unsatisfactory. In times of physical and mental distress I would cry out like Job, "Oh that I knew where I might find him!" I am grateful that Christian Science has given me the understanding that God is ever at hand to heal and to bless, that He is infinite Love, infinite good. I realize more and more that every manifestation of love, no matter how small—a little act of kindness, a loving smile, a helping hand—is an evidence of the ever-presence of God.

In the Bible we read, "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." That Scripture is a command to me. If I would find God I must be alert to see and to recognize the good in my fellow men. Likewise I must express more love, more of good, in my own consciousness. I am then dwelling in His "secret place," gaining the dominion He has promised over every claim of sickness, lack, or mental distress. Through utilizing this understanding I have experienced healings of many discordant conditions, such as influenza on two occasions, the results of a serious accident to an eye, and a very painful internal trouble.
