I am very grateful for Christian Science

I am very grateful for Christian Science. It has revealed to me a perfect, unchanging God, an ever-present Love, so different from the old teaching, which I could never accept though all the time longing for a God I could know and serve. This prayer was answered in Christian Science, and I do gratefully thank our dear Leader for her life of faithfulness to God, whereby she is enabled to be a channel for the glorious truth revealed in our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." I know that our gratitude is best expressed in striving to attain to the same faithfulness.

Four and a half years ago I was suffering from internal catarrh. The attacks were very painful and were becoming chronic, and a great fear came that I could not survive another English winter, yet there was such a dread of death! I was healed instantaneously in Christian Science, without any treatment, from the reading of a Sentinel. The perfection of God, the love of God, came so clearly home to me, bringing such a sense of rest and peace—that at last I had found God—for previously I had become discouraged and weary. The orthodox teaching did not satisfy, there was so much that puzzied me, yet I was not encouraged to reason. It all seemed such a tangle, religion seemed just a bundle of human theories,—ever-changing,—but now through Christian Science we find we have a divine Principle—God, the same yesterday, to-day, and forever, even All, no matter what human belief may assert. I feel so thankful for the knowledge, through Christian Science, that good impersonal—a truth Jesus ever pointed to. My one desire is faithfully to watch and pray, that I may serve the only true God.
