I began attending a Christian Science...

I began attending a Christian Science church because my wife was a member, but for some time I understood little of Christian Science and expected no benefit therefrom. One Wednesday evening I suffered from a severe headache, such as had been troubling me at times for many years. I told my wife that I was too ill to attend church, but she urged me to go. During the service the headache disappeared, and I have been free from these attacks ever since. The fact that Christian Science heals because it is based on Principle roused my interest and led me to study the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly and to attend church regularly.

Some time later and after several years of most discouraging experiences in business, I lost my position. For months I sought what I considered to be suitable employment and tried to use Christian Science to work out my plans. While this period seemed fruitless from human standards, I later realized that during it I was being led away from dependence on human will and human planning toward trust in God's all-power. Finally, after much study and with the loving help of a Christian Science practitioner, I found that I was no longer depending on material plans, but was happy to listen for God's guidance, knowing that my only real employment lay in serving Him.
