It is with a deep sense of love to God, of gratitude to the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and of responsibility to my fellow-men that I undertake to write this testimony of the healing presence and power of God, verifying the Scriptural promise, "Ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." I was a great sufferer for many years from a severe internal trouble. I was treated for this difficulty by a very able, kind, and much respected physician of Decatur, Ill., where I was then making my home. When I was examined the trouble was pronounced an abnormal growth, but when I refused to be operated upon, a more careful examination proved it to be a rupture. A truss was fitted to it, but this brought no relief from the continuous, distressing pain, which was making life burdensome.
In the year 1887 a member of the family became interested in Christian Science, and urged me to try it. I did so, eventually, and did not readily respond to treatment; but on catching the thought of God's presence and power, a flood of light swept over me. I took off the truss, and was immediately healed. I have had no return of this trouble nor of its distressing accompaniments since, and am endeavoring to express my gratitude to God by striving to bring this truth to others; viz., that "God is a very present help in trouble," when understood as explained in Christian Science.
