Inspiration dissolves depression

The first time I can recall praying for myself was when I was a child, playing in the backyard. At the very back of the property was a pile of lumber, and one summer evening I was climbing on it and cut my hand. When I saw the cut, I remember thinking, with great confidence, that God was Love and that I didn't have to be afraid. This was something I'd learned in the Christian Science Sunday School. I remember running into the house feeling very happy, because the cut didn't hurt at all.

At one point in my early twenties, I spent a lot of time studying Christian Science. During this time, I started having headaches almost daily. The pain was often so severe that the only way I could find relief was to go to sleep. I felt frustrated that my efforts to heal myself weren't working. But I trusted that what I was learning about God would lead to healing.
