God's love heals pain in breast

Some months ago, I became aware that I could no longer ignore pain in one of my breasts, which I'd been trying hard to do. When I realized that I was adjusting my clothing, as well as my physical position, to accommodate the discomfort, I knew I needed to take action, so I prayed.

Science and Health points out, "The procuring cause and foundation of all sickness is fear, ignorance, or sin" (p. 411). I didn't think I needed to work on ignorance; and I was trying to live a pure life, so I didn't feel that sin was the culprit. So I focused on fear, which certainly seemed to be uppermost in my thought. "Perfect love casteth out fear." John says in the Bible (I John 4:18). I yearned to feel the healing power of God's love for me. I didn't want to just say the words—I wanted to feel surrounded, immersed, in the protection of His love.

It was hopeless, so I trusted God
