I turned to Christian Science for physical healing

I turned to Christian Science for physical healing. I had what is called paralysis of the bowels, and the doctor pronounced an operation necessary, although he said that he could not promise a permanent healing. It was expected that I would make my decision and go to the hospital the next day. During this period of doubt and indecision a Christian Science friend came in. When I informed her of my problem, she asked why I did not try Christian Science, saying that she had been healed of a similar condition, and it was God's work and permanent. I said, "If it is God's work, He is 'no respecter of persons,' and He will do as much for me."

I engaged a practitioner, and the healing was complete in five days. My happiness was unbounded at this freedom from bondage, as I had been afflicted since childhood, and had tried all the medicines recommended, but they would gradually cease to give relief. I had no Bible, but I never purchased anything so willingly as the Bible, also Science and Health. It seemed to me the nights were not long enough to read all I wanted. I cannot express my joy in knowing god as divine Mind, for I had believed in a personal God, and this seemed so impossible that I had grown to dislike to attend church. Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
