The need for an unquenchable...

The need for an unquenchable faith has probably been felt by most of us who have struggled through the darkness of despair in an effort to reach the light of spiritual understanding, which we sought to liberate us from some form of human bondage. I have found that although sometimes the way is indeed long and extremely rugged, if we hold to the thread of faith, however fragile it may at times appear, we shall find our way to the light of spiritual understanding and know that we are free.

Over a period of seven years I struggled to overcome the results of a severe nervous breakdown resulting from grief over the passing on of a loved one. Several times I attained the goal of normal living only to have some experience cross my path which would again plunge me into darkness and engulf me in fear and mental anguish. Each time the manifestations of this emotional upheaval took on increasing proportions and were of a more alarming nature.

Often when I was unable to read anything else but the testimonies in our periodicals, I was encouraged and sustained by the experiences of others who had struggled and emerged victorious. I rejoice that I too am now able to offer my testimony of complete healing. I can affirm that my crown of rejoicing has been the reward of a long struggle that began with a somewhat feeble faith which was nurtured and strengthened by my mother and a devoted practitioner. I am deeply grateful to God for this support, for it made possible my progress in the spiritual understanding which brought not only freedom and peace but "the oil of joy for mourning" (Isa. 61:3).
