A Willing Surrender

For three years I fortified myself against the action of Truth. I employed all my forces, but only succeeded in waging an unsuccessful warfare, meeting defeat on every hand.

Finally realizing that my position could no longer be maintained, I surrendered unconditionally to Truth ; in whose camp I am now a willing prisoner, clothed with peace and harmony and fed by divine Love.

This capture means much to me ; I had sought, found nothing, and lost all interest in the church. Drifting into superstition I became a follower of Ingersoll and then a believer in Darwin's theory, that "apehood preceded mortal manhood." I read and thought much but accomplished nothing toward solving Life's problem ; and when I placed my theories against Truth, they were as chaff before a gale of wind. Just a puff and all was gone. My investigation confirms the merits of Truth ; a new man has taken the place of the old ; and joy, happiness, and contentment reign supreme within my home.
