Finally free

One morning a few weeks ago I woke up with a cramplike pain in my chest. I could not breathe properly or even move easily. I had some thoughts about God—that He is ever present and the only power. I tried to really see that everything is controlled entirely by God, divine Mind. The pain seemed to pass, so I got up, and as it was Sunday, I went to the Christian Science "Sunday School.

I did not continue my mental work about the pain, but the fear of its return was with me all day. I went to bed still uneasy and aware that I had not completed the healing. Eventually, at about eleven thirty, I got out my Bible and Mrs. Eddy's book, Science and Health, and began to study. I looked up fear in the Concordances to Science and Health and found this reference very helpful: "If you succeed in wholly removing the fear, your patient is healed." Science and Health, pp. 411-412; I knew that it was only fear that was keeping me awake.

So you're a Christian Scientist?
