One occasionally hears beginners in Christian Science say that a problem is too difficult for them to solve, that their understanding is not yet adequate. I myself, however, have been privileged to discover that all-inclusive divine Love guides even the first faltering steps.

In my youth I heard Christian Science talked about now and again. I heard that Scientists said that sickness and suffering were not imposed on man by God, that it is not God's will that man should be sick and unhappy. However, I did not concern myself further with this teaching.

A few years later, I was taken to the hospital with an affected lung. I was told that after my release from the hospital I would have to spend about a year in a sanatorium. After I had lain in the hospital for two weeks, the doctor told me that I was to be X-rayed the next day and would undergo surgery in accordance with the findings.
