Alarming symptoms gone

One day I awoke at 4:00 in the morning and found that my vision was blurred. I was extremely dizzy and unable to move around without hanging on to furniture and walls. It was frightening, and I worried it might be a stroke or a heart attack.

I live alone in a rural area, and since it was still so early, I was concerned that no one would know I needed help. I couldn’t even manage to call a Christian Science practitioner for treatment through prayer. I had to lean totally on God to help me handle the overwhelming fear. 

I have relied on Christian Science for healing most of my life. This moment reminded me of another time of extreme fear, during which a practitioner asked me to hold steadfastly to this spiritual guidance from the Bible: “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalms 46:10) and “Fear not: for I am with thee” (Isaiah 43:5).
