"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good," wrote...

"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good," wrote the apostle. These once seemed empty words, and the thought never occurred to me to put them to a test in practice. It is the world's prejudice which in time of need makes us seek help with men instead of with God, the All-in-all! It is only the fear of being scoffed at which holds us from turning to God. Fear drove me from one physician to another, but I only stepped into greater darkness, until I had become almost blind. I was told that it would be impossible to have an operation performed on the eyes, the trouble having become chronic.

A dear acquaintance then advised me to investigate the teachings of Christian Science, in order to know God aright and seek help in Him. I could not believe what she said, but all resistance seemed to be useless, as the way kept growing darker. Finally I made up my mind to apply to a Christian Science practitioner for treatment. I attended the services of the Christian Science church in Hannover in the company of my sister. The very moment I entered the church a great calm and a sense of peace came over me, and while listening to the Lesson-Sermon my thought was uplifted and I was filled with great joy. The Scripture, "Let there be light: and there was light," became true in my experience, for with a few treatments I completely regained my health, being able to grasp the truth quickly.

I thank God for graciously leading me to find people who showed me the way to divine Truth, and for the ministry through which I was freed from error, so that I can truly say I have tasted and seen "that the Lord is good."
