I crave the privilege of bearing testimony to the healing...

I crave the privilege of bearing testimony to the healing that is being effected in our day by Truth. The summer of 1903 found me a physical and mental wreck. I had been suffering for over four years from what is familiarly known as nervous prostration, severe nervous indigestion, besides a most agonizing pain in my side which had been differently diagnosed by four physicians, but which they had each failed to relieve. I had known of Christian Science in a vague way, but feared to try it as I thought its cures were effected by the use of hypnotic power, and I did not care to have any person take mental control of me. However, my husband finally persuaded me to investigate it for myself, and I am deeply thankful that he did, for I soon found that it is God who governs in Christian Science, and we should certainly be glad to come under His government. My healing was not very quick, as there were many thoughts of self that had to be put out to make room for the divine Love that heals; but one by one they were destroyed, and the blessed peace that came in their stead can only be understood by those who have experienced it.

Our Father-Mother God is now our only help in every need, and we turn to Him, knowing that what we need of health, wealth, and happiness, we shall have, unless we do as did the children of Israel in the wilderness,—"Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel."—Isabel Veiller, New York, N. Y.
