Divine Love hath opened the...

"Divine Love hath opened the gate Beautiful to us where we may see God and live, see good in good, —God all one,—one Mind and that divine," writes our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in "The First Church of Christ. Scientist and Miscellany" (p. 132). I can honestly say I know that Christian Science is the truth, because I have proved its verity in my own experience. What more wonderful gift could be given to the world than the "good tidings of great joy" that there is a law of God which will solve any human problem? Over a period of about fifteen years Christian Science has brought me courage for fear, comfort for mourning, peace for worry, and love for hate. When honestly applied it has never failed to meet my human problems.

My first physical healing through my own understanding was that of a sprained ankle. I was returning from a shopping trip, and in boarding a bus turned my ankle sharply. There was some pain, but I managed to get home. Later I felt violent pain in the foot. I read a copy of the Christian Science Sentinel from cover to cover, but there was no change in the condition of the foot. It was Wednesday night, and I attended the church service, about four blocks distant. Although the pain seemed excruciating. I got there and back. Upon retiring I found that I could not bear the weight of the sheet on the ankle. I started declaring the truths I had learned in Christian Science. This statement from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy came to my thought: "There is no pain in Truth, and no truth in pain" (p. 113). I went to sleep clinging to this great verity. Next morning the pain had vanished. There was only a slight swelling, which disappeared by afternoon. This experience proved to me that every statement of truth realized heals, even though healing may not always be immediately evident.
