It was time for my semester finals

It was time for my semester finals. I was a junior in high school and had been studying Christian Science all my life.

The day of my final examinations I woke up in the morning with the symptoms of flu. At first, fear struck me, and I thought maybe I wouldn't be able to attend school that day. But I had been taught in Christian Science Sunday School that we have dominion over every situation. So immediately I denied the thought of flu having any power and left my thoughts open for God to guide me on to the next step.

When I had freed myself of all fear, I became conscious of God with me. I felt so sure that I was His perfect image and likeness under His government and guidance that the next instant the thought of flu left me, like it was not even there to begin with.
