The thought has come to me that after seventeen years of manifold blessings received through Christian Science it is time to contribute my mite to the Sentinel. My attention was first directed to Christian Science by hearing of the healing of a lady in Los Angeles, Cal. Knowing the terrible condition she had been in, this demonstration of the truth was wonderful to me, and I concluded to try Christian Science for physical help. At that time, 1890, I was living in Chicago, and the jar from walking up and downstairs and on the stone pavements was torture to me. Through Christian Science I was healed of a disease of the kidneys and of bowel trouble in their most dreaded forms; also of heart trouble. I seemed to be a physical wreck, and was nearly a moral one. My healing was slow, for I had many rooms in my house—my mentality—that needed to be cleansed of sin.
With gratitude I acknowledge that in all these past years in Christian Science, when error has offered me many times and in many ways "sweet desires," the credit for the overcoming is due to His "rod and staff," which lovingly restrained me and kept my face towards the pillar of cloud by day and of fire by night. The tobacco habit, the use of alcoholic drinks and profanity,—all disappeared before the sword of Truth. My favorite chapter in Mrs. Eddy's "Miscellaneous Writings" is "Love Your Enemies," and I am trying to follow the instructions given on page 12: "Hate no one; for hatred is a plague-spot that spreads its virus and kills at last." I try to make my seeming enemies a discipline for myself, and as I persevere and succeed in this line I am wonderfully rewarded. Christian Scientists can well appreciate the words of the psalmist, "Who is so great a God as our God? Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people."—W. H. Pomroy, Everett, Wash.
