In the Bible we read, "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy." I feel that I have waited far too long to "say so," because I seemed to be waiting for an outstanding healing that would impress those who read. I felt that the small progress I had made did not warrant a written testimony, overlooking the fact that many others are confronted with just the average and ordinary problems, and are reading the testimonies, seeking encouragement.

On page 39 of Science and Health Mrs. Eddy says: "Mortals must get the true idea and divine Principle of all that really exists and governs the universe harmoniously. This thought is apprehended slowly, and the interval before its attainment is attended with doubts and defeats as well as triumphs." Error tried to tell me that the "doubts and defeats" were more in evidence than the "triumphs" in my experience; but I can see now that all were opportunities for growth, and that I had to be more persistent in working out my salvation. So now I desire to give thanks wholeheartedly for Christian Science, for every least bit of understanding, for all the small beginnings, and all the proofs of its power to direct my ways. I am glad that I was desirous of self-improvement, which led me to the study of this beautiful religion. It has made plain to me most of the parables which Jesus taught, whereas they meant nothing to me before, in spite of the fact that I had often read and tried to understand them.
