A writer in a Christian Science Sentinel...

A writer in a Christian Science Sentinel made this statement regarding the healing efficacy of Christian Science: "People everywhere are endeavoring to solve problems similar to those over which we may have achieved a victory." I had not thought of Christian Science healing in this manner until awakened by this statement. I realize now that a Christian Science healing is a blessing not only to the one who experiences that joy, but to all.

My first healing in Christian Science, that of homesickness, came some years ago. Since that time the healing power of Truth has overcome such things as colds, fevers, inflammation, false appetite and an embolism following an accident. A physician told members of my family that I could not possibly survive the attack of embolism, but with the loving help of a Christian Science practitioner, the error was destroyed and harmony prevailed in a very short time.

I am grateful for all the healings experienced through the application of Christian Science, but it seems to me that the overcoming of the tobacco habit has been my greatest joy. This healing took place quickly after I realized that the use of tobacco is not in accord with the teachings of Christian Science. Mrs. Eddy also made it clear to me on pages 404 and 405 of our textbook. Science and Health, that there is no real pleasure in false appetites. Holding steadfastly to these truths as recorded by our Leader brought release from the habit of smoking, which had held me in bondage for many years.
