THROAT PROBLEM HEALED
My first healing took place on an occasion when I had gone to help my parents to move. I awoke in the night with an affected throat, a trouble to which I had always been subject. My first thought was that I would now be a hindrance and not a help. Remembering, however, that I had brought the Christian Science textbook with me, I began to read the chapter on Prayer. On page 14 I paused where it says, "Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual, neither in nor of matter, and the body will then utter no complaints." Pondering these words I fell asleep and awoke well. During the thirteen years which have since elapsed I have never had that throat difficulty, and when I hear the words just quoted read from the desk in church or elsewhere, the joy of that first healing returns afresh.
I knew then that I had found the truth; and I have since proved daily that Christian Science, when properly applied, meets our every need. I have had other proofs of healing. Lumbago has been overcome at once; neuritis was a long time in yielding, but I am grateful for the many lessons learned during the time between its appearance and overcoming; warts have disappeared from both hands. The greatest blessing and joy of all, however, has been in learning how to think properly and, in so doing, how to help others as well as myself. For this I can never express sufficient gratitude.
