"I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord."...

"I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord." This verse from Psalms (118:17) was a promise and a fulfillment for a period of more than four years before my complete freedom from malignant disease was realized. Although I endeavored to the best of my ability to place full reliance on Truth, it was a very long time before the faithful, persistent, prayerful effort of a deeply consecrated Christian Science practitioner received any real response in my consciousness.

It was never a temptation to me to seek a medical diagnosis because for many years I have had an absolute conviction, based upon healing proofs, that what God in divine Science cannot do, cannot be done. A degree of faith in matter was long ago exploded for me. I saw that actually there is no matter to heal, only thought to be transformed and awakened to reality. One definition I found of the word "malignant" in Webster is, "rebellious against God or against a government." I came to perceive the fact that malignancy has no operative force. I had a desire to understand Truth or a desire for Truth, but my great need was to grasp the spiritual sense of Truth and to live it.
