When we make Mrs. Eddy's words come alive through demonstration...

When we make Mrs. Eddy's words come alive through demonstration, they become a source of inspiration and guidance. My husband and I had a business of our own and had decided that it was right to sell it. The sale was rather quick, and my husband went on to new commitments. This left me to close out the business, and the prospect seemed quite burdensome.

My first day of being alone left me with an overwhelming sense of fatigue. Upon arriving home, I went to bed immediately and neglected to do specific prayerful work. The following morning I wasn't any better, but I got up and read the Lesson-Sermon, outlined in the Quarterly. Still I felt no relief, and since there was need of immediate help, I called a practitioner. She began treatment at once.

I had a few moments before going to work, so I sat down with Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, confident of its healing power. I opened to this passage (p. 249): "Let us feel the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into newness of life and recognizing no mortal nor material power as able to destroy. Let us rejoice that we are subject to the divine ‘powers that be.’" Wonderful conviction came through this Christ-idea. I knew that energy is divine. Thus I gained a glimpse of my true spiritual being. The healing was instantaneous, and I went to work completely free. I remained that way throughout the entire business experience. It has been a permanent freedom.
