A momentous step
Another sleepless night, and I had to get up early. Kids to get off to school, a long commute, and a full day of work ahead, along with a million things on my to-do list. I knew that the sleeping pills in the bathroom would guarantee me a few hours of the rest I so desperately needed. But on this particular night, more than ten years ago, I decided that I was going to say no. No more pills, no more dependency on anything other than the powerful, immediate, comforting love of God to get me through the night.
Lying there, I prayed to understand more completely that God was protecting me and calming my turbulent mind. And even though it wasn't immediate, I finally did drift off to sleep. The next morning I was determined to keep my resolve to really take a stand for Christian Science healing, and I threw the box of sleeping pills away. I remember thinking, Even if I never get a full night's sleep again, I will never rely on any other medicine to get to sleep than the medicine of divine Mind.
