Gratitude for Slow Healing

I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude for the slow healing of Christian Science in my own experience. I am confident that if my healing had been speedy, and entirely the work of another, I should have been satisfied with the loaves and fishes, the material sense of relief. Through "waiting for the redemption of the body" I grasped the understanding of the true idea of God, as universal Love and harmony, and I found, as Mrs. Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings," p. 169, that "With the understanding of Scripture-meanings, has come physical rejuvenation. The uplifting of spirit was the upbuilding of the body."

I was not willing to be patient. I resisted and rebelled, but through the struggle, I found that I must work and watch and pray. I gained sufficient understanding to watch and pray aright, working out my own salvation with fear and trembling, knowing that it was God (Good) working with me "to will and to do of His good pleasure." I was always a praying Christian, having joined the church when but ten years of age.
