One good thought
The other day, on an early Saturday evening, I was feeling quite ill. I felt really hot and miserable. I went to bed, just wanting to go to sleep. When my mom came in my room, she helped me pray.
My Sunday School teacher gave me a "treasure" chest. It's a brown wooden box where I collect spiritual ideas from the Bible and Science and Health. Each week my teacher mails me a note to put in my box. My mom read out of it. While she was reading to me, I was still wanting to go to sleep, but I heard her reading, "The only power of evil is to destroy itself" (Science and Health, p. 186). To me that meant that evil is nothing. Sickness has no power to do anything to me; it can only "kill" itself. My mom asked if we could talk to my teacher. I agreed, and she called her and asked her if she could share some ideas with me.
My teacher suggested to hold on to one good thought. As my mom left the room to check on her cooking, I thought about what I wanted to hold on to. In a few minutes, I called out to her that my one good thought was that nothing could get in the way of me having fun. I knew that nothing was preventing me, because God was there and only God had power. I kept that idea.
You can do it!
