I turned to Christian Science for comfort and help when my heart was filled with grief, resentment, and bitterness. Christian Science gave me the Comforter, revealed to me the mother heart of God, and has made known to me the truth which enters into each and every problem of our daily life; for Love rightfully understood meets every need of humanity,—this inexhaustible Love, which blesses all. I am thankful that through the study of Christian Science I have come to understand the unreality of those things which held me in bondage. With the consciousness of this great and beautiful truth, we can never for an instant lose sight of our divine inheritance; thus our longings are satisfied and the hungry heart is filled with goodness.

Another reason why I am a Christian Scientist is that each step of the way can be demonstrated. Mrs. Eddy tells us: "Hold perpetually this thought,—that it is the spiritual idea, the Holy Ghost and Christ, which enables you to demonstrate, with scientific certainty, the rule of healing, based upon its divine Principle, Love, underlying, overlying, and encompassing all true being" (Science and Health, p. 496). If we demonstrate each step, we know we are doing the work which Jesus commanded us to do. It may take some time to make the demonstration of the healing, which we so much desire; there may be much false sense to overcome; we may need to learn the lesson of patience, as well as many other lessons, but the promise is that when we search for the truth with our whole heart, we shall find it. If we are searching for the love which never fails, we shall recognize God's law, and the unreality of man-made laws when they come before us to be destroyed.

We'd love to hear from you!
