Deep gratitude for Christian Science impels me to send this testimony. After suffering from kidney trouble for months and having just given up medical treatment and suffered a severe relapse, I commenced this study. Through reading the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, I was completely healed in a few days. During the ensuing five years I had no medical treatment, but many quick, often instantaneous physical healings were effected through the application of the truth as taught in Christian Science.

I wish to testify to one healing which to human sense was slow but which brought me great spiritual blessings through the knowledge of God's omnipotence. After severe mental disturbances over three years ago, mental depression followed, combined with heart trouble, and thoughts of fear that the senses might become deranged became manifest. I was given loving and patient help in Christian Science, and even in the darkest hours was upheld by faith that the truth which Jesus demonstrated and which Christian Science had taught me to understand, would also free me from all fear. The mental depression vanished gradually, and at first came moments, then hours and days, in which I found rest in the sure knowledge that evil is not power. How grateful I was for these first moments after the terrible storm which had raged in my thoughts for weeks. It took longer before I found complete mental peace in my business activities, but thanks to the assistance which I often received through a practitioner, it was unnecessary for me to give up my work at all. This alone seemed a wonder to me, for although appearing calm outwardly, during some strenuous activity a feverish fear possessed me; this often became manifest when only seeing others actively engaged in work. How grateful I am for the liberation from this fear.

This experience has proved to me that every mist, no matter how real or dense it may appear, must give way to the omnipotence of Truth. We have only to wait patiently on God. I have fully recovered my former cheerfulness and am thankful to God for every experience which compels me to come nearer to Him, for then we realize the truth of the Bible words, "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."
