In Chapter 103 of Psalms in the King James Version of the Bible, we read these words (verses 2, 3): "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases." The many healings I have experienced over the years prove that it is indeed God "who healeth all thy diseases." One healing that stands out in my experience occurred in May, 1947. About a year before this I began having difficulty with what might have been diagnosed as arthritic rheumatism. I was seldom free from pain and could not sit for very long at a time. My only relief seemed to come at night when I was asleep.

This growing incapacity was so subtle that it lured me into several wrong paths of thinking. One belief, which was eventually uncovered in my thought, was that since my paternal grandfather and uncle had suffered with rheumatism, my trouble could be a case of heredity. Then, too, the thought that a change of climate might help tried to gain a foothold in my consciousness.

The condition grew steadily worse. After I had several hard falls, a member of my family suggested that because of these I might have suffered internal injury. He urged me to have X rays to learn if such was the case. A few days later, after three consecutive sleepless nights, the awakening came. I told the member of my family who had suggested the X rays that I had always relied on God before and that I would ask help of a local Christian Science practitioner. By this time the suffering was almost more than I could bear, so my husband took me to the practitioner's home.
