A few years ago I awakened shortly after midnight with severe pain in the lower portion of my body. For some time I prayed, acknowledging God's allness and man's perfection as His likeness, but without relief. I finally felt I could not stand the discomfort much longer, and I silently cried out, "Dear God, why don't I get any relief? I've been relying on Truth."
On page 581 in the Glossary of the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, is a definition of "angels" which reads in part, "God's thoughts passing to man." Immediately the following came to my thought (Isa. 26:3): "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." The word "stayed" seemed to be emphasized. Then I saw why I wasn't getting any relief. This Bible verse contains a rule for scientific demonstration and the reward for following that rule is peace. I was not following the rule, for one moment I was trusting in God to heal me, and the next moment I was dwelling on my suffering.
