Through Christian Science my life has been richly blessed

Through Christian Science my life has been richly blessed. I am grateful for the protection I experience daily through realizing that God is Love. Once when I was spending several days at the seaside, I longed for more illumination and spiritual peace. Yet despite the beauty of that place, I still felt depressed. After praying for a long time, this came to mind with great clarity (II Cor. 12:9): "My grace is sufficient for thee." The uplift that followed was wonderful. It was as if these words had been spoken aloud to me, for this truth wrapped itself around me like a warm coat. It was evident that whatever might come, I would always be safe with the loving comfort our Father gives us.

Some time later—just in passing—I glanced through a magazine that described an illness viewed as very dangerous. The symptoms were given in detail. With horror I realized that I had been manifesting all of these symptoms, and a great fear came over me. I read the medical report through several times, hoping to discover something that did not pertain to my condition after all. But study of this report only depressed me more, because it described my physical situation in the minutest detail.
