Several years ago I developed a fear of subway steps

Several years ago I developed a fear of subway steps. The fear and tension mounted. At the same time a painful skin condition erupted that confined me to bed for a week. I spent that week purifying my thought by reading Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, as well as the Christian Science periodicals. I received prayerful help from a Christian Science practitioner, with whom I made an appointment for the end of the week.

As I left my apartment to keep the appointment, I felt the still small voice warning me against wastefulness. Taking a taxi seemed wasteful to me under the circumstances, and I walked to the nearest subway entrance. The fear had dropped away and I walked freely down the steps, rejoicing and thanking God for the healing. I realized that without wavering I had been obedient to God's guidance. The painful skin condition left me within a few days.
