Christian Science found me when...

Christian Science found me when I could gain no relief from a depressed attitude unnatural to me. At the time two faithful medical specialists were trying to improve my general health in the belief that the cure for the depression lay therein. Through the study of Christian Science I have gained both good health and freedom from depression.

My first healing took place at a Wednesday evening testimony meeting in a Church of Christ, Scientist, which I attended somewhat reluctantly. I had suffered for several days and nights from a large sty on the upper eyelid. Medical aids seemed only to aggravate it. When I returned home a member of the family who had witnessed the condition was amazed to see nothing whatever but a sound eyelid. The gathering had not broken. The sty had simply disappeared before the power of the truth which was read from the desk that night.

It is hard for me to describe the heavenly comfort and aid to spiritual progress which I have gained from church membership. Many obstacles to my becoming a member presented themselves until I finally saw that man has actually no choice to make, because progress is God's law of salvation, which can never be set aside. I learned that the joy of obedience to this law cannot be humanly measured. The kindly, steadfast love of Christian Science friends, practitioners, librarians, and those serving in church offices has been a beacon light to me at all times.
