Christian Science a Practical Religion

When I look back a year and a half, which was the time I first became interested in Christian Science, it shows me more plainly than anything else what it has done for me, and what it means to me.

Then I attended church occasionally, from a sense of duty. I tried once in a while to read a little from my Bible, but I could not understand it at all, and many times I felt most unhappy when I thought of going through my whole life really having no religion. When I I realize that in such a comparatively short time I have found God, that I love my Bible, that in attending church I find one of my greatest pleasures,—and that it is the knowledge I have gained of the Truth of Christian Science that has given me these blessings,—my only wonder is that I am not more grateful, for I have truly come out of the darkness into the Light.

Every trial in the way of opposition, though seemingly hard to bear at the time, has afterwards proven to me the truth that is given to us in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker G. Eddy, "Trials are a proof of God's care," for afterwards I find myself more sure than ever that Christian Science comes from God, for it shows me Him in time of trouble. I realize now that if there were nothing to meet I should not have grown as much as I have, and those very trials have each been a stepping-stone upward, though I was far from seeing it at the time.
