About three years ago a growth...

About three years ago a growth appeared on my face. For a time I declared in my prayers the allness of God, good, and the consequent nothingness of evil. However, the growth still persisted and grew worse. Becoming fearful, I visited a Christian Science practitioner at her home and asked her for treatment. After I had talked with her for a short time, all the fear I had felt was dispelled by the love and assurance she expressed. She told me that what I was seeing on my face was no part of my true, spiritual selfhood as an idea of God and that I should not look at it.

She continued to work prayerfully for me, and one morning I found that the growth had opened and was discharging. I became a little fearful again and called the practitioner, telling her what had happened. She was very calm and reassuring and restored my confidence. From that time on, the growth gradually diminished, and it finally disappeared. I found a great source of help during this time in these statements from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 207): "There is but one primal cause. Therefore there can be no effect from any other cause, and there can be no reality in aught which does not proceed from this great and only cause."
