From my early youth I desired to know the purpose of being. During my college years I tried to read and understand the book of Revelation. I leaned on the promise of "the morning star," ready to overcome everything to obtain it, and on the promise of Jesus, "I go to prepare a place for you ... that where I am, there ye may be also;" and I wanted to be there, too, with the meek Teacher and his faithful followers—and prayed for it. After many years of preparation, with lessons of patience, humility, and stead-fastness, a ray of light from this "star" brought me to Christian Science. When reading the wonderful chapter on Prayer in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy I knew at once that I had found the truth for which I longed.

Since then all my diseases have melted into nothingness as mist before the rising sun. Extreme nervousness, sleeplessness, chronic throat trouble, anæmia, serious kidney trouble, a tendency to take cold, influenza—all vanished, as well as financial difficulties and the feeling of injustice and persecution. In place of these dark clouds came the radiant proofs of the ever-presence of God, Mind, Love, and His reign of good, loving-kindness, abundance, and harmony. My heart sings praises to God for His infinite mercy, which is more and more universally felt and reflected in human hearts and organizations for world peace and good will.

I am grateful for the divine protection I have experienced many times when danger seemed imminent; for the problems I had to solve that appeared first as heavy burdens, but later were seen, in the light of Truth, as revealing God's blessings; for the love I have always received when needed, confirming the living words of our dear Leader (Science and Health, p. 494), "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need."
