I am humbly grateful for the liberation that comes to us through the ministrations of the gentle, saving Christ in our study and application of the teachings of Christian Science. I have been freed from tonsillitis, from which I had suffered since childhood, constipation, the smoking and drinking habits, and a tendency to be extremely tense when confronted with decisions.

An outstanding healing occurred about twelve years ago and has been permanent. Migraine attacks became more frequent, and one night the excruciating pain made it impossible to rest or sleep. The thought came, "You don't have to wait this out as usual, or continue to think that sleep will cure it for you know Mrs. Eddy says (Science and Health, p. 151), 'The human mind has no power to kill or to cure, and it has no control over God's man.' " I then saw my need was not to get rid of the headache but to get a clearer understanding of the divine Mind and its control over me. I studied a passage in the textbook which reads (ibid., p. 284): "Thought passes from God to man, but neither sensation nor report goes from material body to Mind. The intercommunication is always from God to His idea, man." The acknowledgment of Spirit's control over all freed me instantly. The truth of this message in Science and Health never left me, and a year ago an understanding of it again brought quick healing from an injury when a ligament on the back of my heel was severely cut.

Each day I feel a deepened sense of God's dear love for me and all mankind, for His forever control in my affairs, and for His tender care and protection for all His children.
