I feel I must give expression to my joy and gratitude for the better understanding of God gained through the teaching of Christian Science. Having been most religiously brought up, I thought I was a Christian and tried to live a consistent life, but latterly was conscious of a vague sense of unrest. My sense of God did not satisfy me, He seemed so far away. I was often ailing, and suffered most intensely at times from severe headache, but I learned to bear it with resignation as the will of God.
With the passing on of my dear mother, great sorrow and bitterness filled my heart that God should so discipline me, although I dared not say so. Then a copy of the Sentinel was given me to read. I had heard of Christian Science before, but only in ridicule, and so I was quite unprepared for the splendid ideal it upholds. Later these same friends loaned me "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and I read it hungrily. Here was the God I needed and to whom I had unconsciously been reaching out! But, as for years I had been trained to think of God differently, I feared to accept this to me new teaching, and a mighty struggle began within me. Evening after evening a dear friend patiently explained seeming difficulties and encouraged me to struggle on through doubts and fears, until one glorious day the truth of being dawned upon me and I was radiantly happy.
With the understanding of Truth came healing. Since childhood I had suffered from internal weakness, and I was wearing a supporting belt. I had been told by a doctor that I would never be really well, but thank God I am well and happy. Weakness, heart trouble, and headache vanished like the dream they were, and I am finding out now in the daily problems I have to meet that God is indeed "a very present help."
