For many years Christian Science has been my only physician, and I have found that, when rightly applied, this method of healing never fails. This truth destroys whatever seems to be inharmonious in one's experience because it brings out the perfection of man as God's expression or idea.

At one time I suffered great pain in my right arm. I called a Christian Science practitioner for help, which was faithfully given. The pain subsided, but there seemed to remain a dull ache in the arm. This condition continued.

I felt sure that the textbooks, the Bible and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and the Lesson-Sermon contained the answer to my need. Each day when I studied, I prayed that this would be revealed to me. The answer did come when I read this one short sentence at the bottom of page 203 in Science and Health: "God is at once the centre and circumference of being." I studied the words "centre" and "circumference" in the dictionary, and again I marveled at Mrs. Eddy's wise and inspired choice of words.
