I am grateful for the lessons we learn when we experience healing in Christian Science, and I should like to tell about a healing I had some time ago. All of a sudden one day I became quite ill. In a few days I started to be very weak and had to lie down after doing the slightest task. As time went on I grew weaker and found myself lying down most of the time. I managed to dress myself each morning and study the weekly Bible Lesson, found in the Christian Science Quarterly. Then during the day, again lying down, I did other studying from the writings of Mary Baker Eddy or read our Christian Science literature. This went on for about three weeks until one day I became so weak I even fainted.

One afternoon, when I was going to be alone, I decided I would just lie down and study the whole afternoon and see if I could not get my thought so filled with the truths of Christian Science that healing would result. I did this, and in the late afternoon I tried to get up, but was still very weak. That night my prayer was along this line: "Dear God, please show me in some way what I am doing wrong or what I am thinking wrong, because I want to do what is right." I remember I slept well that night, but the difficulty was still present when I started to get up the next morning.
