From early childhood I was a constant sufferer from what several eminent physicians pronounced an abnormal growth, none giving any hope of a permanent cure. Thus I was looked upon as a hopeless invalid, until at last that which I most feared came upon me. I had been confined to my room from early spring until October, and death was looked for hourly. It was then that friends urged a trial of Christian Science; but I objected, as I felt I had suffered so much that even should I find relief it would only be temporary, and would at last fail me as all else had done. I was, however, finally persuaded; a practitioner came, and after talking to me, gave me a treatment. He then expressed a wish that I rise and dress, but I felt very indignant, for I thought that he did not understand my condition. He left, and I finally did get up, and the medicine, which had been taken every thirty minutes and upon which I absolutely depended, was thrown away. My healing seemed very slow, but it was sure, and to-day I am well. Many times discouragement came, but loving counsel and patient care, strong faith and tenderness were a solace to me,—a revelation and a reflection of the Divine compassion,—until at last I became conscious of the truth of being. I read in our text-book. "Then thought gently whispers; Come hither! Arise from your false consciousness, into the true sense of Love" (Science and Health, p. 574). I seemed to catch the full meaning of these words, and saw that "in the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death."—Isabel Lambert, Reed City, Mich.
