Lifted from Helpless Invalidism

Three years ago I was lifted from helpless invalidism to health and strength through Christian Science. I had been under medical treatment almost continually for six years, suffering from indigestion and nervousness, a most unhappy condition to be in; but through the faithful and loving patience of a Scientist I was taught to know that God is Life eternal, and that there can be no sickness and misery in God or His creation, which always has been, and always will be, perfect.

My recovery was somewhat slow on account of my doubts and fears, as I was afraid to trust God wholly. I had been educated to distrust on account of the many failures I had encountered in material means, which always were failures, one after another.

After being absent some months under treatment, I came back so changed that my best friends when meeting me on the street did not recognize me, as I looked the very picture of health.
