Awakened to Health and Happiness

About four years ago I was liberated from bondage by the still, small voice of Truth. When I first heard of Christian Science I was at a sanitarium. The physician told me that a doctor who would say I could be healed, either knew nothing about his profession or had no regard for the truth. That night my pillow was wet with tears. Suddenly the sweet thought came, "The doctor is mistaken, you will get well." The tears were wiped away and I rested sweetly.

In a short time I received a letter from my mother, which told me of the healing of a friend, who had been an invalid several years, and whose case was considered hopeless. She had been under the constant care of prominent specialists in the north, and finally, when all material means had failed, she, as a last resort, had Christian Science treatment and was healed. She sent me the name and address of the lady who had treated her, with the request that I apply to her for help.

The thought of Christian healing appealed strongly to me, but I did not understand how a lady in Chicago could help me, and I so far away. I thought if this is God's work, why cannot I go direct to Him for help? This I decided to do. I went home, and while using material remedies, I prayed to a corporeal God to bless them, and to please let me get well.
