Some years ago, my starting a new business took all the resources and financial backing available to me at the time. We got off to a good start, but before the first year had ended it became apparent that we had too much business during part of the year and not enough at other times. At one point, the industry we were serving had to close down for a model changeover. This we were unprepared for. Soon I found myself harboring a deep sense of fear and anxiety.

Being an earnest student of Christian Science, however, I had for a long time made a regular study of the weekly Bible Lesson found in the Christian Science Quarterly. In reading the lesson that week, I was awakened by this statement in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p.162): "The effect of this Science is to stir the human mind to a change of base, on which it may yield to the harmony of the divine Mind." By the time I had finished reading this, my thought was so enlightened with God-inspired thoughts that the negative, depressed ones I had been taking in just vanished.
