Through many years of incessant pain and illness, the cry...

Through many years of incessant pain and illness, the cry ever and anon rang out to God,—"Please help me." Night would never close in without a great dread of the dark hours to be gone through in agony and sleeplessness, but "God said, Let there be light." Through what was meant as an effort of kindness, in the old way, a very serious scald was accidentally received, which made it seem too cruel to believe that there could be a God who was cognizant of such pain. But "God said, Let there be light: and there was light." After skilful physicians had administered their remedies and failed, a lady came and asked if she might not give me help in her way. Her religion had always seemed to me a part of her character, and the night seemed so black that anything so simple as her words implied could not really reach my manifold weaknesses. My case was seemingly hopeless, but I told her, "Yes, do your worst or best, whichever it is." The pain was relieved and I slept that night without morphine; still I did not fully believe in the efficacy of Christian Science, but I knew there must be something in it. After I got better I went to a teacher. My faltering footsteps were gently led into the supreme light which reveals the ever-presence of divine Love. I owe sincere gratitude to Mrs. Eddy, whom God has so richly endowed with the light that shall lighten the world, the light that never fails.

Mrs. Maude M. von Pustau, Brooklyn, N. Y.
