Chronic Disease Healed

I have been in Science a little over a year. At first I could not see the benefit of the testimony meetings; but soon after having felt the power of Truth over error, I realized that there was something to tell, and now, I never tire of telling what it has done for me, and what it can do for others.

For years I was a sufferer from a supposed chronic ailment, and my only hope of release was the grave. The world indeed looked very dark to me. For about eight years I had lived on medicine of every description, but grew worse. However, I kept my troubles to myself, knowing that it would not help me to tell others what I was going through. About this time I was advised to try Science. After some little persuasion I decided to take treatment that very day, not with a feeling, however, that it would do me any good; results were not speedy, but the more I read Science and Health the more I believed that it was practicable. During my treatment I was called from the city. I had never taken such a trip without my material remedies, but in this case I left them behind. absence my case did not seem to respond quickly. However, I kept faith, and after some days of patient waiting I had my reward, for I was agreeably surprised to find myself entirely free. My thanks went out to God and to our Leader, also to the patient practitioner who helped me to gain the understanding of the Truth which makes us free.

I have had several beautiful demonstrations in my home, and I find that any error which presents itself is more easily overcome than the preceding one: showing that the more implicit faith we place in the Almighty, the greater will be our reward.
