Christian Science Healing

Since taking up the study of Christian Science, some fifteen months ago, I have enjoyed reading the Christian Science Sentinel and other literature. The many demonstrations mentioned in the Sentinel during this period, have been of much interest to me. At first they suggested what I might some time accomplish for myself. Now they prove doubly interesting as they voice my own experience, only perhaps along different lines.

I have been as deeply interested in cases of healing that have taken months as those that were accomplished in hours or minutes. To my mind there is good and sufficient reason for some demonstrations being slower than others. It is quite natural for us to wish for, and rejoice over, quick healing, still there is no occasion for regret or disappointment over what we are accustomed to speak of as slow demonstrations. With our limited understanding of divine Love, it may be we are unable to recognize the great benefit it will prove to us to have some demonstrations extend over a period of weeks or months, or even a longer time. To all who are in haste I wish to say, be patient and persevere and Truth will prevail.

As my personal experience during the past year may be of interest to some who are in haste to recover I will briefly relate it. On one occasion after endeavoring to overcome a severe strain of the right arm and limb, which almost paralyzed them, I called in a Christian Science healer, and it required about a week to give me ease, and another one to effect a complete cure. Since then I have felt no effects of the strain, and walk as easily and rapidly as before.
