One day, at school, a friend told me that he had a cramp in his stomach. We went to lunch, and I noticed that he wasn't talking as much as usual. After lunch, I reached in my pocket and found a wrinkled-up piece of paper that said: "Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike good. God has made man capable of this, and nothing can vitiate the ability and power divinely bestowed on man" (Science and Health, p. 393). I think Mom had put it there a long time ago. I didn't know it was there!
Well, I read that piece of paper over and over a couple of times, silently. I was in a quiet place in the room. Then I thought that God is everywhere. That means that there is no place that pain can be. It was time to go to the library. When I was choosing my books, the boy came up to me and said, "The cramp is gone!" He was very happy, and I was very happy for him. I felt good for him.
