In grateful recognition of the many blessings I have received through Christian Science, and in the hope that my experiences may bring encouragement and help to some other seeker, I send this testimony for the columns of our periodicals. Truth has been my only physician for a number of years; and I am indeed grateful for the moral, physical, and spiritual regeneration which I have received, as well as for the help Christian Science has been to our family.

A few months ago, I was asked to take up a certain line of work. There did not seem to be any one else to fill the vacancy at that time. My home being on a farm, there were more duties to perform than usual, as it was the fall of the year. In answering the telephone call, I said my household duties seemed ample at that time, but if it was right for me to take up the work I would do the best I knew how, and would be there at the appointed time. I hung up the receiver and went upstairs preparing to do the work. I prayed to God to guide me and give me strength. As I pondered over the problem, my thought became very clear; and I realized that God had answered my prayer,—that I was not called upon to do more than I was able to do, and if this was not my task the vacancy would be supplied by some one else. Before I had finished dressing, the telephone rang and the same person said, "You need not come; the need has been met." I was very grateful for this experience, as it taught me that God does protect us every step of the way.

A short time ago, my little boy was seized during the night with fever, and coughed almost continually. I applied the truth to this problem, as we are taught to do; and I remembered a testimony which I had read a short time before in one of our periodicals. The writer quoted this sentence from a Christian Science practitioner: "Where will you put it? God is All!" I realized immediately that as God was All, there was no room for this seeming attack. At once the child's condition improved; and he slept soundly the rest of the night. The next day he played as usual.
