When Christian Science was...

When Christian Science was first presented to me many years ago I recognized that it is not only the solution to the world's problems of sin, sickness, and poverty, but a Science which must be spiritually understood and demonstrated.

In the early days of my study of Christian Science a dear one passed on, and I was able to prove that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Ps. 46:1). I gained much spiritual understanding through this experience and was lifted above grief and a sense of separation. The divine fact that God is an ever-present help has never left me and has been an invaluable aid to me in innumerable ways.

When I experienced what was believed to be rheumatic fever and was suffering acutely it came to me very clearly that God, Truth, was present and therefore nothing else was needed to heal me. I held to that fact, and within twenty-four hours I arose from my bed completely healed. There were no aftereffects.
