One day I was terribly frightened when I discovered a lump in my breast that I feared might be malignant. Although I had been a student of Christian Science for many years and experienced its healing effectiveness, I was simply terrified. So I telephoned a Christian Science practitioner immediately, and prayerful treatment was given at once.

At first the fear didn't go away and doubt overwhelmed me. I kept thinking, "Suppose I don't get a healing. Perhaps Christian Science won't work for me this time." I remembered this passage in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 495): "When the illusion of sickness or sin tempts you, cling steadfastly to God and His idea. Allow nothing but His likeness to abide in your thought. Let neither fear nor doubt overshadow your clear sense and calm trust, that the recognition of life harmonious —as Life eternally is—can destroy any painful sense of, or belief in, that which Life is not." I felt that if my thought was anything but calm and trustful and was full of doubt and fear, I couldn't possibly expect a healing.
