To those struggling with a physical...

To those struggling with a physical difficulty, I should like to say, "Don't become discouraged, for God is good and can never be separated from His reflection, man." A few years ago I suffered from a heart condition, sleeplessness, and intense nervousness, accompanied by great fear. This lasted for over a year. However, as I studied Christian Science and spiritualized my thinking and had help from practitioners at different times, the illness lessened until it vanished, and I was healed.

At the same time a growth appeared on my face. I held to the truth that no false sense of substance can adhere to man, God's idea; that man's substance is not material but spiritual, because he is the image of God, as the Bible tells us in Genesis (1:27). In Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 477), "Soul is the substance, Life, and intelligence of man, which is individualized, but not in matter." When I became no longer conscious of the growth, it began to lessen until it disappeared, leaving no spot.

Recently, I suffered great pain from sciatic rheumatism. I had the help of a Christian Science practitioner, who asked me to visit her. For over an hour she talked of God's goodness and His perfect creation and of my relationship to Him. The next morning after I finished studying the Christian Science Quarterly Lesson-Sermon, I arose from my chair completely healed. Oh, how grateful I was to God for His great love for His children!
