"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and...

"Bless the Lord. O my soul, and forget not all his benefits," said the Psalmist. For all the good I have received, I sing praises to God. I am also grateful to Christian Science for showing me the right way.

I should like to relate one of the experiences I have had. As I was about to get on a streetcar, I struck my left leg with great force on one of the steps. I immediately began to suffer intense pain. During the trip I tried to realize that as the image and likeness of God, man could not suffer any evil; hence no such effects could be in evidence. I worked for several days on this problem, and the condition was bearable: I was able to go about my household duties. But then I was taken with such severe pain that I was unable to walk. My leg and foot were badly swollen. An open wound formed, and my leg was badly discolored. Evidently I had not been alert enough. When I saw that I was not overcoming the error myself, I asked a practitioner for help, and some relief was experienced right away.
