I did not come to Christian Science for physical healing,...
I did not come to Christian Science for physical healing, but in search of the God of love. For a number of years I had tried to live patiently under a law that medical science had laid upon me. After the birth of our child complications resulted that necessitated my remaining off my feet for a week or so at a time, and I rebelled. The best physicians in our city agreed that an operation might help, but that if it did not I would be in a worse condition than before.
This went on for four years, or until I began to study Christian Science. I had not reached the point of asking for help-my longing being to find God—when one of these attacks came upon me; and it was the worst attack I had experienced. It was so severe that I was only semiconscious all day; and when evening came there was a strong desire to take medicine to ease the pain. I went to the medicine chest intending to take the medicine, but, instead, poured it down a drain. I remember being able to say, "I am going to leave this to God." After going to bed I went to sleep, and in the morning awoke well. This was my first healing, and it stands out clearly. In the years that have passed I have found so many women trying, as I did, to bear up under this disability and thinking that there is no help or hope of relief, that it is with the desire to reach them I cite this healing.
