A number of years ago, while I was holding an important office position and leading a very active life, I was stricken with a breakdown, which resulted in a sense of utter exhaustion, heart palpitation, and such extreme weakness that I was unable to leave my home for many months.
It was then that I first turned to Christian Science for help. The practitioner whom I called asked me to read and memorize passages from the Bible, among them a verse from Isaiah: "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." I was greatly impressed by the practitioner's familiarity with the Bible and her obvious love for it. I am glad that I, too, through the study of Christian Science in the years which have followed, have grown to know and love the Bible as never before. Several references from the textbook, Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, were very helpful, one being from line 29 on page 217 to line 8 on the next page. Through the practitioner's consecrated work I was gradually able to be active all day with no sense of fatigue. I am indeed thankful for this renewed activity, and especially grateful that I am now able to attend regularly both our Sunday morning church services and our Wednesday evening meetings.
At one time an attack of influenza was beautifully healed. For two days I had been working to know God's allness, and the nothingness of anything so unlike Him as this disease. Yet I still seemed quite ill. I telephoned to a practitioner for help, and then lay down and read the textbook. In not more than half an hour I was able to be up. It was about two days before I was completely free from this difficulty, but at no time, except for that half hour, was I unable to be up and working.
