Christian Science is indeed...

Christian Science is indeed opening my eyes to "behold wondrous things out of thy law."

For many years prior to my study of this Science, I had longed to understand and to demonstrate the healing power of the teachings of Jesus. I was earnestly seeking some solution to my physical and financial problems. Often I had wonderful results through prayer, but the troubles kept returning, sometimes in more acute forms. At last, in great distress of mind and body, I offered constant and importunate prayers of petition to God to be shown just what was retarding the solution. The answer came through a gradual but clear realization of two mistakes I was making. First, I was relying on medicine, although with an increasing doubt of its efficacy. Secondly, I was looking to some understanding friend, or religious leader or group, to pray with me, rather than depending calmly and radically on my own intuitive sense of God's guidance.

Some time after these thoughts began to awaken me, I was led to go to a Christian Science practitioner. During the first interview I became so much interested in what was told me about Christian Science and Mrs. Eddy that I forgot to explain just what my problems were. As I arose to go, the practitioner asked me what my difficulty was. I then told her of the doctor's diagnosis of high blood pressure and serious heart trouble. After reassuring me, she said: "There is one thing that I want to ask of you. I want you to be obedient." I am very grateful for this emphasis upon obedience. Many times thereafter it helped me and enabled me to stand fast in hours of severe stress and strain.
