When we observe and acknowledge...

When we observe and acknowledge fear and lack, which are not qualities of God, we put ourselves through many trying physical and mental conditions. I remember reading in one of the Christian Science periodicals a statement to the effect that to admit that error exists is to say that Truth is a lie.

A member of our family kept admitting the existence of lack. Just a few weeks before our vacation date, this member remarked about every other day that we could not go on our vacation because we would not have enough money. I became so discouraged that I went to bed one evening feeling as if someone had beaten me all over and not even caring to live any longer. The next morning I could not get out of bed. I was seriously ill for three days. Then a change of practitioners was made, and in one hour the heat and pressure in my head were relieved; but the feeling of not caring to live stayed. Several times I could feel myself slipping away, but the practitioner's constant insistence that Truth is not a lie turned me around, headed me in the right direction, and made me feel worthy of myself again.
