With a heart overflowing with gratitude for Christian Science,...

With a heart overflowing with gratitude for Christian Science, my thought turns to our Leader, and I would tell of the fruits gleaned from the study of her books. I have had such a wonderful proof of the ever-presence of divine Love, that, like Mary Magdalene, I express my gratitude with tears and also with the oil of gladness. I had been going through the wilderness of doubts and fears for the past two years, yet striving to hold to the ray of light that had come to me, though at times the way was dark and God seemed afar off. I felt that others found Him a present help in times of trouble, but I had lost my way. Fears which had been planted in my consciousness by physicians, and hospital work, made a mental picture that has seemed hard to erase. But thanks to God and Christian Science I am leaning upon His sustaining arm with a victory won for good.

The Lord's Prayer has a new meaning to me since I have studied it in the light of Christian Science. I now know that we really can have nothing but what God sends, and that He sends nothing but good. I am very grateful for the Christian Science literature, and thankful indeed to know the meaning of "Lo, I am with you alway."
