Seeking and Finding

Christ Jesus said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God." The writer was healed in 1901, in two weeks, by the devout study of the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, after having been for a year and a half under materia medica, the ills from which she suffered being pronounced "Bright's disease," rheumatism, and dropsy. Since that time she has had marvelous proofs of God's care. With startling clearness the promise that all good things will be added when we seek first the kingdom of God, was verified to her a short time ago, and the experience was wonderful, and withal so simple.

A friend who is a Christian Science practitioner, asked if I would be willing to do a little missionary work which required a nurse? I replied that I would, but when I went home I found I had very little money on hand and the bank was closed. I felt the urgency of the call, however, and started. When I got off the car at the railroad station, a young man helped me with my suitcase, and after learning where I was going, told me I had no time to lose and I would have to buy my ticket on the train. While waiting for the train to start, a disturbed sense seemed to prevail, and I said in my heart the words of our dear Leader, "Shepherd, show me how to go;" and the other line, "I will listen for Thy voice" (Poems, p. 14). Instantly there came to me these words: "Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left." There was my answer!
