A Year of Christian Science

Two sayings of Christ have recently been impressed on my thought as never before: "Seek, and ye shall find," "They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick."

A year ago I was sick,—sick physically,—and had been so for eight years, but more sick mentally; life for me had been a hopeless tangle, and up to that time I could see no pleasent prospect, no hope of desire fulfilled. By great effort and sacrifice on my own part and on the part of others I had received a good education and had tried to make myself useful, respected, and valuable to the world around me; but every year was lessening my hold on these things that I valued, and life had degenerated into a desperate struggle for existence, with every chance seemingly against me. Eight years of chronic diarrhœa had so weakened me that while the disease had partially left me, the discouraged heart-sickness had vastly increased. I needed a physician and I knew it, but I had tried all schools and classes of doctors with little avail. I now see that I diagnosed my needs very well when I came to the conclusion that if I gained any benefit it would be by some mental method that I had so far failed to discover.
