A little over a year ago, a sore developed on my leg. It grew in size, and I become concerned. In praying about it, I knew I had to get rid of fear. Christ Jesus said, "Be not afraid" (Matt. 14:27). I felt Jesus could say this because he knew God to be the only power, and that we can trust Him for healing.

Every time I thought of the area, or bumped it, which was often, my thought turned to some spiritual truth from the Bible, such as "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good" (Gen. 1:31).

I claimed that as God's child, I was under His law of love, not a law of disease. This seemed important to do because I live in a warm climate where there is much publicity warning people about the dangerous effects of exposure to the sun. In the Glossary of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, sun is described as "the symbol of Soul governing man,—of Truth, Life, and Love" (p. 595). In this context, to me, Soul stands for God, and I knew that if God is "governing man," there is nothing to fear. Man here refers to all men and women and children. I had learned that God is the only Cause and Creator, and that God is Love, and that the effect of Love is always good.
