After a long hard struggle in my Christian faith, praying...

After a long hard struggle in my Christian faith, praying almost unceasingly that conditions might become better (according to mortal mind, everything was going wrong), I had but a faint hope that all would come right some day. I, however, thought I should never live to see it, as my health was failing with the long mental strain. I was tired and weary of life as I understood it, and was longing for the rest that I thought could only come by laying down this mortal body in death. But how different my life has become, since there lived a Christian Science lady not far from me who seemed to know me better than I knew myself. We met a few times and talked, and I was drawn to her so that when burdened I went to see her. In about a week after going to her for help. I was made a new creature, old things having passed away. I was free, instead of a nerve-wrecked mortal. I had longed to go to heaven, and now heaven had come to me, for we pray, "They will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." My Christian faith has been changed to understanding (with plenty of room for unfoldment), and I am able to demonstrate the truth for myself and family of five.

Never since we were healed in Christian Science have we had medical aid or drugs, and with such an uplift that I felt as did David of old, that I was "in a large place," where the future is the present, for there is no present, past, of future with divine Mind. I once lived for the future, but now I live for the present and have both, and still new blessings and thoughts unfold to us as we can grasp them. I have at last found the truth for which I hungered, to see the power of God manifested as I believed it should be, according to the teachings of the New Testament. My Christian friends think I have gone off on a by-way, but I can say from my heart, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." I feel that I am sailing on the ocean of divine Love, and I am very grateful for this truth which makes good real and evil unreal. Fear of evil once held me in bondage, but now I know that God has all authority. I send this with love and gratitude for the first brave heart who dared to stand on Christ's promises and who has revealed through "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" this truth to all.
