I have proved in my daily experience that no situation is hopeless when one avails oneself of the truths taught in Christian Science. This has been my way of life since a neighbor introduced me to Science when I was in my late teens, and I thank God for His divine direction.

My first healing was of boils. They appeared on my face, neck, and arms, and were very painful. As I was the only member of my family interested in Christian Science, relatives suggested material remedies. I wanted to rely on my newfound understanding of Truth, and the answer came at a Christian Science lecture. The inspiration gained that evening has never left me. It was that you do not work to heal a material condition, because man is not material. He is spiritual, created in God's likeness. You lift up your concept of man to recognize the perfect child of a perfect Father. This perfect concept results in healing.

I had an occasion to prove this several weeks later when another boil appeared. Turning to Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I read (p. 261), "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts." I did just that and after several hours, which included household chores along with knowing the above-stated truths, all signs of the boil were gone and that was the last boil I ever had.
