In My Christian Science Practice, people sometimes call me and say, "I love Christian Science. I don't doubt its healing power, but I question my ability to demonstrate it. I have so very far to go before I'd be worthy of being healed." So far to go in their understanding of God, they say.
Yet a beautiful old hymn assures us,
Not what I am, O Lord, but what Thou art;
That, that alone can be my soul's true rest;
Thy love, not mine, bids fear and doubt depart,
And stills the tumult of my troubled breast.
(Horatius Bonar, Christian Science Hymnal, No. 195)
