a milestone for me
I remember some years ago, when I was living in Illinois. Fall was beginning, and I felt symptoms of a heavy cold coming on. I felt as though I had been hit by a freight train! Waking up in the morning, I thought, "Oh my gosh, how am I going to make it through the day?" I had a big day of work ahead, and for a moment I couldn't see how I was going to accomplish everything I had to do.
But then equally strongly, I felt a countering thought. I realized I didn't have to accept the prospect of a miserable day. As a Christian Scientist, I was used to praying for all my health needs. And I saw that it was imperative right then to accept the supremacy of God. I knew from my whole life-experience that God was omnipotent and had always been the only power. And I knew this all-power covered the whole field, including my present situation.
