I welcome this opportunity to express my deep gratitude for the many healings and blessings that I have experienced during the past few years through my study and application of the truths of Christian Science. The following demonstration is one for which I am most grateful.

For over two years I had been working and praying to overcome a false mental picture which seemed to have taken possession of my thinking, and which was trying to erase all the truths I had learned and proved throughout the years since I had been studying Christian Science. The erroneous thoughts that presented themselves were self-depreciation, self-condemnation, and self-pity, as well as a sense of failure in my work, and most of all, the fear of losing a position which I these material arguments, with their accompanying doubts and fears, tried to shake my faith in God's power to heal. But whenever the temptation to resort to some other means of help presented itself, there was always some statement from the writings of our revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy, or some passage from the Bible, which held me to truth and renewed my trust in God. One day when I seemed to have reached the limit of my mental endurance, the statement, "Man's extremity is God's opportunity," came forcibly to me. My resolve became stronger to trust in God's promises, and to try once more to put my problem in the hands of divine Love. With as much confidence as I could command, and with a deeper sense of resignation to God's will than I had ever felt before, I clung to the statement on page 495 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, "God will heal the sick through man, whenever man is governed by God."
