Willing to Know the Truth

I was led to investigate Christian Science by my willingness to know the Truth. I spent my evenings in reading, and after a time of severe criticism, mortal mind was conquered and the spiritual sense of things became real to me. When my thought was centred on spiritual things I saw clearly that nothing else existed, that Life is God, and God is Life. I have experienced some grand demonstrations, one of which I shall relate. One holiday when at home doing some repair work, with the hammer, an attempt was made to pull a long, rusty nail from a piece of wood. As it did not yield at first, I redoubled my efforts, and suddenly it loosened, and the hammer landed with great force on the side of my knee cap. I continued my work and in about an hour the leg was stiff and continued to grow quite serious. In the evening my wife and I went to a healer and I limped all the way. Within an hour the fear entirely disappeared, and when we were about to start on our return trip, it was suggested that a carriage be called. The healer, on being appealed to, said he would not advise against it, but recommended that Truth be depended on. So again I proved Love to be All-in-all by a return walk of nearly two miles. I was not kept at home from work an hour and lost no time. In about three days I walked without limping.—A. D., Mt. Vernon. N. Y.
