I wish to express my gratitude to God for His healing...

I wish to express my gratitude to God for His healing power. In my experience "man's extremity was God's opportunity." I was told by many physicians that my case was incurable but that I might be benefited by an operation; but the great Physician was presented to me through Christian Science, and I can truthfully say that God has met my every need. Internal troubles from which I suffered all my life have been healed; also bowel trouble, hemorrhoids, and a catarrhal condition of the intestines. Bronchitis and many other ills have been overcome, and to-day I am a strong, healthy woman and can work from morning until night without being tired, while before coming into Christian Science I could not do my housework or be on my feet very long at a time. Life was a burden to me; also I had what the doctors said was inflammation of the bladder, of which I have been completely healed.

I am grateful for the healings of many errors of disposition and my one desire is that this uprooting of error may continue until I have that Mind "which was also in Christ Jesus." Since taking up Christian Science I have had to meet and master error in many ways, but God has been with me and I have had many proofs of His love, and I am grateful for these demonstrations. I am grateful to God and to Mrs. Eddy, also to the practitioner who helped me over many rough places. That my life may be a blessing and an example to all with whom I associate, that this testimony may be of help to some one, and that I may be worthy of the name Christian Scientist is my desire.
