During the past seventeen years...

During the past seventeen years I have had many opportunities to be grateful for the teachings of Christian Science. It has enabled me to solve many types of problems, including physical, financial, and moral ones. Some of these healings have been accomplished through my own work and some with the help of a Christian Science practitioner.

Some time ago I passed through an experience which I should like to relate. When I returned from work one day, my ankle began to pain me. As I reached down to touch it, I noticed that it was infected and quite swollen. I allowed my thinking to become so overwhelmed by the pain and discomfort that I was unable to walk the following morning.

Although I spent two days working to realize the truth of man's being as a child of God, there appeared to be no improvement. My thinking at this time was not clear because of worry about my absence from work, possible loss of salary, and future commitments. A practitioner was called, and help was given; but still no change was apparent. The pain increased, and it was necessary for me to remain in bed.
