Severe pain conquered

When my husband and I were newly married, I was teaching nursery school. One morning as I began to prepare breakfast, I was seized with extreme pain in my side, making it impossible for me to stand. My husband and my mother, who was visiting us, helped me lie down on the couch. Both began assuring me that since God was all-powerful and ever present, I could not be attacked by another power. However, the pain was so great it seemed to overwhelm me. Then my mother firmly told me to repeat the words "God is love" (I John 4:16). I was obedient and reached out with all my heart to divine Love, acknowledging my perfection as Love's spiritual idea.

Instantly, the pain ceased. I got up feeling refreshed, invigorated. We had breakfast, and off I went to work, rejoicing. There were no aftereffects from this experience, and the pain has never recurred.
