I love the day that God revealed to me His law, Christian Science

I love the day that God revealed to me His law, Christian Science. When in the past I lived in ignorance of this law, I thought I governed myself and did my own will; but now I see that all I seemed to do came to naught, while an unseen Love showed me those human footsteps which led to purer desires, until I was prepared to receive the revelation of God's presence, Christian Science.

While suffering from chronic stomach trouble, weakness, sick headaches, and constant pain, with eyes bandaged so no light could penetrate, nothing could keep the light of Truth from entering consciousness, and in this condition I was nearer God because self-will, resentment, and pride were departing. One Sunday, when our beloved grandmother was making us a visit, she saw my sad condition, and in loving sympathy spoke to me about trying Christian Science, since everything else had been tried and had failed. Knowing nothing of Christian Science, not even that it healed people, I went with an open mind to take my first treatment. While I did not gain much consciously at the first treatment I thought this religion must be good, because the practitioner was so loving and I felt happy to be with her. The next day I was awakened: the thought came to me that here was the very thing I had always longed for, and I realized then that this teaching would work out all human problems. My long nights in prayer had not been in vain. God had heard my prayers and answered them.
