My heart is overflowing with...

My heart is overflowing with gratitude to God for Christian Science. It was presented to me by a dear friend at a time when I was groping in mental darkness, trying to reconcile the concept of a good God with all the evil and distress I saw in the world. The reading of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy enabled me to see that because God is good and is All-in-all evil is an unreal concept, an illusion. With this clearing of my mental vision came a healing of the need for wearing glasses. This occurred over twenty years ago, and there has since been no need for glasses.

I have had many other physical healings, sometimes through my own work for enlightenment from God and sometimes with the aid of a faithful practitioner. Among these healings have been those of granulated eyelids, painful swellings, and influenza, which was healed instantaneously. I am most grateful for the overcoming of mental darkness and periods of depression, as well as for a beautiful healing of grief, which brought with it an increased understanding of God as Life. My gratitude for this last-mentioned healing was so great that I had an overwhelming desire to serve the Cause through active branch church membership. This desire enabled me to overcome the tobacco and alcohol habits.
