While still confronted with problems that seem unsolved,...

While still confronted with problems that seem unsolved, it is a privilege to bear grateful testimony to rich blessings already received through a year's study of Christian Science. A few days ago I awoke with a severe sick-headache, which seemed to grow worse until I was unable to read or to hold in my thought anything that had helped me at other times. I was alone, and would not send for help. In my misery I did not doubt that God was still my refuge, so I prayed that He would send me a thought that would help me. In a little while, one of our Readers came and brought the healing message. She talked with me a few minutes and I was not sick any more. I attended to the duties of the day, sewed, and studied until twelve o'clock that night with no sense of weariness or discord. This quick and complete healing meant a great deal to me. These attacks have been of frequent occurrence, and were very tenacious in times past. It meant more because the answer to my prayer came so definitely and quickly, bringing comfort and encouragement in the sweet consciousness of God's ever-presence and tender care. Many times the help for perplexity, suffering, and fear has come through the words of our text-book, and for this I am grateful.

The Science work that has come to me, I regard as a sacred trust, and I have wanted to give it holy thought and do it perfectly because it was God's work. I was drawn to Christian Science through the beautiful life of a friend. She did not talk it to me, but reflected divine Love so that afterwards, when far away from her, I overcame indifference, prejudice, the fear of opposition, and sought out this Science mainly that I might thereby come nearer to her. Now that I have come to love the truth for its own sake, I am the more grateful for being led towards it in so gracious a way. I needed Christian Science, and I am proving in some degree that divine Love, does satisfy the heart and meet our every need. I seemed always to have been seeking God, but knew not where to find Him. I rejoice now in the clearer vision of our Father that comes to me through the revelation of Truth as taught by our Leader in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."
