Christian Science Testimony
A STORM STILLED


         The psalmist sang, "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea." Several years ago an earnest student of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook witnessed a scene where sudden tempest seemed imminent, and there appeared to be great danger. Clinging to her understanding of the truth as taught in Christian Science, she mentally battled with her sense of despair within and of destructive elements without that was well-nigh overpowering. Lifting her thought above the discordant scenes of earth to the eternal reality of being, a cry went out to the Christ, "Lord, save us: we perish." . . . The false sense of confusion and disaster was rebuked. The "Peace, be still" had been spoken, and the discordant picture was soon superseded by a glimpse of the real universe which she can never forget. All outward manifestation of a storm ceased almost immediately; and there was a great calm, as one heart at least was freed for a time from the thralldom of physical sense.
