I had been exposed to Christian Science...

I had been exposed to Christian Science for some time, but it was not until I had accompanied a relative to a lecture on the subject that I became somewhat aware of the good this religion is bringing to mankind. I was startled by the lecturer's opening statement, "I expect healings here tonight." My thought went to the lump that had been forming in my breast over a period of time and was becoming increasingly sensitive. I do not recall today who the lecturer was or even the theme of the lecture, but I know that I was healed at it.

It was about two weeks later that I again thought of the lump, which had been almost constantly on my mind prior to hearing the lecture, but I could find nothing. I was completely normal!

I should like to be able to say that I was like the one leper out of the ten whom Jesus healed, who, "when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God" (Luke 17:15). However, this was not the case. Instead, in the five years that followed, I went down one false path after another, finding disappointment, frustration, unhappiness at the end of each one and certainly never what I hoped to find. Then one day I knew that this blind wandering must stop. I had looked everywhere for happiness except to God. In desperation, I was willing to try God, and I was to find out just what God can do for His children.
