I desire to give praise and gratitude for Christian Science

I desire to give praise and gratitude for Christian Science. During the past fifteen years it has brought to me many blessings. Many physical healings have taken place, some of which have been instantaneous. One winter I came home from the office with every symptom of the grippe. I was unable to eat my dinner and went to bed with a high fever. I slept little, but declared that God and His creation are perfect and that He never made a discordant condition. In the morning the fever had left and I was able to get up, but not to go to business. I still seemed to have fear that I might have to remain at home longer, and so called up a practitioner at noon for help. Immediately after the truth was voiced to me I felt uplifted, and by three o'clock was entirely free. I went to business the next day perfectly well.

A badly sprained wrist was healed within a week. Pleurisy was healed in a night. I could not take a long breath without crying aloud, but managed to get to the telephone after twelve o'clock at night to call a practitioner, who lovingly helped me to know the truth. I became quiet within a few minutes and fell asleep, and awoke in the morning entirely free from pain. The second day I drove a car one hundred and fifty miles without any ill effects. I have also been healed of indigestion, neuralgic headaches which in the past would have lasted three and four days at a time; also of chronic constipation. Canker and fever sores which were a great trial to me before becoming interested in Christian Science, have also passed away.

When I started to read the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, the revelation that came to me that God is my Life and that in Him I live, move, and have my being, healed me of the awful fears I seemed to have at that time. It was a joy to know that the government is on His shoulder, and that I had no burden or responsibility; that whatever I had to do could be done by trusting God, knowing that He governs and directs His child in all his ways. However, soon afterward, while on a vacation, I had to prove that God is my Life. I was trying to swim in a mountain lake which was six feet deep at the shore and went suddenly from six feet of water to eighty feet. I found myself beginning to sink. I called for help, and sank once. Just as I was going down the second time a gentleman came to my assistance and brought me to shore. I did not become panicky, but affirmed that "God is my strength and power." There were no ill effects after this experience. Many business and financial problems have also been solved.
