Feeling convinced, as I do, that I owe to Christian Science...
Feeling convinced, as I do, that I owe to Christian Science my life and health, I give this testimony with a joyful heart and a feeling of deepest gratitude. Christian Science found me in the worst stage of a chronic nervous trouble. For five years I lay in a state of complete physical and mental inactivity, and suffering pain continuously. In spite of the earnest endeavors of six physicians, who declared my case to be altogehter abnormal, and in spite of all the various remedies and modes of treatment resorted to, my condition did not improve, and I was in a state of deep melancholy. After all human help had failed, it dawned upon me that possibly there was a God who might help, and Christian Science came into my experience like a light shining into darkness. I shall never forget the deep impression I received when I caught the first glimpse of the truth during a conversation with a Christian Science practitioner. I was told that God is Love, and that it is not according to His will that His children should suffer; that disease is a false belief, good alone constituting reality, and this was to me a revelation. I felt that it must be true, and today I know through innumerable experiences that it is true. I had found a religion such as I had always longed for, and the question had often presented itself to me: Can anything true be found at all, and is there such a thing as true religion?
Under the protection of divine Love I again took my place among my fellow beings. I was born anew physically and mentally; I was filled with buoyancy, and gradually recovered the faculties which I seemingly had lost. I was again able to stand, to walk, and to think. I abandoned the strict diet which I had followed, and was completely healed of a lack of appetite of years' standing, of continuous pain in and bledding of the stomach, and was also freed of chronic indigestion. The latter difficulty disappeared as soon as I stopped using material remedies and recognized that it is not matter which heals, but the divine Mind. For years I had been susceptible to changes of temperature, and I was afraid of being exposed to fresh air or to sunshine, as this would cause me a great deal of suffering. However, when I learned that God created man to have dominion over all the earth, including the forces of nature, so called, and that divine Love fills the universe. I overcame the sense of fear. In the summer of last year I went to the seashore for the first time, and on very stormy days the former condition of weakness seemed to return; but with one treatment the evil was met.
