How thankful I am to God for healing my diseases and for this wonderful truth as revealed to us through our text–book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." I always loved to read the Bible, but did not understand it then as I do now; and it is much more beautiful to me. All the promises now seem so true and real, and they are all for us today. As we read in Jeremiah, "I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord." I hope that this testimony may give courage to some hopeless sufferer.

My case was considered hopeless, according to materia medica, for my physician (to whom I am grateful for his efforts to restore me to health) at last told me that the less medicine I took, the better. I realized then that God alone could cure me, but how this was to be accomplished I did not know. I believed that, as James says, "the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up;" but I did not have that faith. In February, 1906, I was taken sick with a severe gastric disorder, and a physician kept me on a strict diet for five months, but this and the drugs did not benefit me. We then took a trip overland to the Yosemite and were gone eight weeks. I seemed to be much benefited for a while, but in November I took cold and all the symptoms returned. I gradually grew worse, and the following February the doctor pronounced my case a serious affection of the stomach and both lungs.
