Things have greatly changed since I came into Christian Science

Things have greatly changed since I came into Christian Science. I see everything in a different light. Before that time I feared everything. If I heard of something that had happened to a neighbor, I feared it would happen to some of us, and I carried that load until I heard of something else. I also suffered from constipation, which had troubled me for eight years, but I can now say that I am freed from all. It was about two years ago that I first heard of Christian Science, but I could not get a copy of Science and Health, until June, 1903. When I began reading this book, it was like Greek to me; but I had not read very long before I caught a faint glimpse of its meaning, and the more I read the clearer was my understanding. What a comfort it was to me, the error that seemed so real in the old thought had disappeared into its native nothingness.

I wish to tell of a demonstration I had with my grandmother. She was taken ill very suddenly, and when I got to her home I thought she could not live. Then the thought came to me.—God is with you, can't you speak the truth to her? What a calm, peaceful feeling I had as I realized the truth,—knowing that God is Love and God is Life. She did not seem to get better for some time, but I clung to the truth without a doubt, and in the course of an hour and a half the swelling had all gone from her tongue and it had its natural color. She could talk, and then the jerking ceased. She was much better, and to-day she is as well as she was before she was sick. This proved to me the power of divine Love to heal.

I have the Christian Science Sentinel, and Quarterly, which are a great help to me. I can hardly wait from one week till the next to receive the Sentinel, for the testimonies are so much help to one who is striving to live the truth. I am very grateful to our dear Leader for making known to the world this beautiful religion of divine Love. As we imbibe the spirit of the Christly teaching contained in Science and Health, it sets the captive free and brings health, joy, plenty, and peace.
