I did not come into Christian Science for physical healing but because of a deep hunger to find God. I had not attended a church service in sixteen years, because for me it held no meaning. But Christian Science changed that. It opened wide the whole wonderful concept of God. Christian Science proved to me that there really is a God who loves each and every one of us, and I ate up all that I could read and grasp of Christian Science.

A healing which stands out to me is one which took place about twenty years ago while I was living in the northern United States. In the spring swarms of black flies would appear. These flies had a bite which was poisonous to me, and swelling would result. The Bible quotation "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good"(Gen. 1:31) helped me realize that God did not make poisonous ideas, that everything He made must be good.

I had a large garden. As I worked, pulling weeds, I would mentally discard wrong suggestions, which seemed to grow like weeds in mortal mind. After two weeks of diligent daily prayer the healing came. As I finished the Bible Lesson one morning, I had the conviction that the healing was manifested. And it was! Though I lived in that locale for several more years, I was never again bothered by such flies.
