Because I have learned that...

Because I have learned that problems promote our growth. I feel grateful indeed that when I reached my extremity as a young woman I found the wonderful healing truth presented in Christian Science. I was immediately healed of much fear and realized that to worry is indeed to break the First Commandment.

When in deep humility, willing to give up everything I held dear just to know more about God. I prayed to be shown the way the answer came immediately. Although I did not recognize it then as an angel voice. I was led to telephone a friend whom I knew to be a Christian Scientist, and whose life attested that she relied on her religion for help. I knew absolutely nothing about the teachings of Christian Science at the time. Shortly afterwards I found myself with a borrowed copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which I read day and night. Truly God had answered my sincere longing. I was instantaneously healed of the desire for materia medica, understanding to a degree that since God is All-in-all we cannot possibly have anything more.

Each day brings healings as I understand more fully my at-one-ment with God. To have learned anew that "God is no respecter of persons" gives me unspeakable joy. Each day more of the omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience—all-power, all-presence, all-wisdom—of God is unfolded. Our first proof of physical healing was the overcoming of fever, which was instantly dispelled through the reading of "the scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468).
