When ordinary ways have failed

If you need healing, or help in some other legitimate way, you don't have to take no for an answer. There's always a possible way through the impasse, even though it may not be at present visible to the human mind. With Christian Science directing our reasoning and life, there is always cause for hope. We never come to the end of the line of spiritual possibilities. Divine good is always operative exactly where the material impasse seems to be.

The way to approach any roadblock hopefully is to listen to the voice of Spirit, not the voice of matter. Take the instance of a disease doctors diagnose as incurable. This is what Mary Baker Eddy writes: "Materia medica says, 'I can do no more. I have done all that can be done. There is nothing to build upon. There is no longer any reason for hope.' Then metaphysics comes in, armed with the power of Spirit, not matter, takes up the case hopefully and builds on the stone that the builders have rejected, and is successful."
