For twenty years Christian Science has brought me...

For twenty years Christian Science has brought me peace, comfort, and healing; increasingly so, when I have learned to see and understand that the time spent in the working out of problems is a growing time, which adds to my store of blessings. In the words of our beloved Leader (Science and Health, p. 66), "Trials are proofs of God's care."

A short time ago the opportunity and necessity came for proving the power and presence of Mind over matter. A growth manifested itself on one of my eyes. I paid little attention to it at first, but when more than a month passed and it was still there in larger form, I became very fearful. One day, in rubbing the eye, I discovered two lumps under the surface, though I never looked at them. No consistent work had been done, and companions at work began to notice and speak of the error, even approaching me to "take a good look!" I kindly avoided them and never discussed or even mentioned it to them, though I became more troubled and fearful; so much so that I asked a practitioner to help me. After ten days there seemed no improvement and I felt that I could have no more treatment; but I did a great deal of thinking, for I knew that it was impossible not to receive some benefit from every Christian Science treatment, and I also became conscious that I was looking for a material change. In this honest searching I soon realized, and with what joy, that every vestige of the fear was gone. It no longer worried me to look into the mirror when necessary. For this I was very grateful, and I immediately began to see more clearly how to help myself in this new freedom.
