Many years ago, before I became...

Many years ago, before I became interested to Christian Science, questions would come to my thought when I studied the Bible which I was unable to answer. When I asked members of my former church to answer them I was told that they were mysteries. This was not very satisfying. Then I began reading Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and I had read only a short time when I stopped and with great joy said out loud: "There are no mysteries. Here everything is explained."

Several years ago I lost the use of my right hand and arm. The condition was a very painful one. I asked for help from a Christian Science practitioner, and it was lovingly given. I was relieved from time to time, but the trouble returned. I knew that there must be something in my thinking which needed correcting. The condition continued for two months. At times, when thoughts of discouragement tried to enter my thinking, I recalled the many healings I had experienced and those of my family and friends over a period of twenty years, and I knew that Christian Science heals, and that it would heal me.

I went to see a Christian Science friend in another city, who had helped me many times, and asked her to help me uncover the error that was preventing the healing. We talked late into the night. In the morning she told me that she believed that the trouble was self-will. She asked me to study this sentence from Science and Health (p. 99): "The calm, strong currents of true spirituality, the manifestations of which are health, purity, and self-immolation, must deepen human experience, until the beliefs of material existence are seen to be a bald imposition, and sin, disease, and death give everlasting place to the scientific demonstration of divine Spirit and to God's spiritual, perfect man." I returned to my home, strove to be obedient, and watched my thinking. I shall never forget the joy and peace I experienced the next week. Every time a suggestion of self-will or error of any kind tried to come in, I denounced it and knew that I was, in my true being, a perfect spiritual idea, and that this error was no part of me. At the end of the week I was completely and permanently healed.
