More than twenty-five years ago, when I lost my life companion, I received at this grief-filled turning point of my life the promise (Isa. 43:1), "Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine." An old acquaintance wrote me at that time in warmest sympathy, stating that blessings can grow out of sorrow. At that time I could not imagine how this could be possible. Only when I met my present wife shortly thereafter and learned of Christian Science through her did I suspect that God had called me.
I had always believed in God, and I had belonged to the established church from the time I was born, but found little comfort or satisfaction in its interpretation of the Bible. However, when I took up the study of Christian Science in earnest, I discovered that I had found what I had unconsciously sought for a long time—the spiritual meaning of the Bible. This I found Mary Baker Eddy has disclosed to us in the textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, so that we may recognize the spiritual reality that underlies all being and apply this knowledge successfully to the difficulties of daily living and master them.
With growing spiritual understanding I became free of bad habits, including drinking and smoking, and gained self-confidence, fearlessness, and inner peace, as well as worthwhile friends. I experienced healings of the most diverse sort—of an arterial injury, of ptomaine poisoning, of a painful skin inflammation, and of a tendency toward colds and throat ailments which had bothered me from youth. The healing of serious rupture, which I had incurred after the war while chopping wood in the forest, was especially impressive. Because of pain in walking I had worn a support for a while; but with the help of the prayerful metaphysical work of a Christian Science practitioner this healing resulted very naturally without a doctor or an operation.
