I have been an adherent of Christian Science for the past eight years, and have had many opportunities to experience its beneficent influence. It was brought to my attention through a friend who had been healed by it of illness of many years' standing. I gladly attended the services and meetings, and although I did not understand much of this blessed teaching, I nevertheless always felt drawn to it, because of the joy and happiness which the congregation reflected in word and in appearance. It took but a very short time for me to be made happy by the wondrous truth which I had been seeking unconsciously up to that time.
Although I did not find my way to Christian Science through suffering, I have been freed from many a physical ailment during these years. I cannot thank God enough for having been restored to health, but I am still more grateful for the spiritual gain, for the recognition of the power of Truth. When I was younger I found but little joy in living, and my light was darkened by worry and by gloomy meditation. Since I have become acquainted with Christian Science, I enjoy a sense of activity and a desire to work which I had not known before. Now I know that divine Love and omnipotence helps us daily to overcome all false inclinations, to discern the power of good and to demonstrate it more and more; evil gradually loses its seeming power over us, and we advance joyfully and with a sense of security. Even if to mortal sense the way seems dark, we know that the light will keep growing more bright. I cannot be thankful enough that through Christian Science I have come to a better understanding of the Giver of all good.
