Christian Science came to me...

Christian Science came to me sixty-one years ago, when I was healed very quickly of a bad stomach trouble and many other complaints. I had had several physicians, but like the woman in the Bible (Mark 5:26) I was "nothing bettered, but rather grew worse." When I began to see that God is Love, what a blessing I received, for I had previously believed in a personal God.

I should like to speak of an experience I had over two years ago. I coughed for two hours steadily. I began to think that I had done all I knew how to do, for I had applied the truth the best I knew. Then these words came to me from "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mrs. Eddy (p.93): "Your answer is, that neither fear nor sin can bring on disease or bring back disease, since there is in reality no disease." Then I thought of her words on page 120 of Science and Health: "Health is not a condition of matter, but of Mind; nor can the material senses bear reliable testimony on the subject of health." As I pondered this statement, the Master's words (John (8:32), "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free," came to me. In a little while I fell asleep, and slept until morning. I did not have another hard coughing spell. The fear departed, and I was healed.
