One Wednesday night I wanted to give a testimony at my branch church's testimony meeting. But I thought I was too nervous to say anything. I soon realized, though, that I wanted to thank God and to share my ideas with the other people at church because maybe something I said would help someone. After listening for God's thoughts, I stood up and gave the following testimony.

I like playing baseball. I have played on a team in a league since I was in fourth grade. But whenever I got up to bat in a game I used to get scared that I would get hit by the ball. One day during a game I saw some of my teammates nearly get hit by the ball and I, too, was afraid of being hit.

Then I remembered something from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 475): "Man is not matter; he is not made up of brain, blood, bones, and other material elements." I also knew that man is completely spiritual, so I am completely spiritual. Love is Spirit. Love is all around us, and we are always reflecting Love, because Love is God and we reflect God. As God's reflection, we can't be hurt. Knowing these facts helped me overcome my fear.
