Feeling led by God

My story is like that of many. I grew up in a traditional Christian household; as a family we went to church every Sunday. While growing up I became separated not from God, but from church attendance. As I raised a family of my own, we started to attend church on a regular basis, and everything was good. I had gone full circle and returned to my starting point.

Now I come to the part about Truth. I picked up a copy of Science and Health. I read it from cover to cover in a week's time. There was much to understand, and I had to go back and reread many sections. The conclusion I reached can be expressed in one word, Truth. I felt that my whole Christian life had been a path leading toward this book and the Science of Christ, which it presents. I never felt in all my experience that I had been led by God, until that moment. "Christian Science reveals incontrovertibly that Mind is All-in-all, that the only realities are the divine Mind and idea," the book explains (p. 109). My conclusions brought me back to the point of making a decision: how could I continue to be with the church I was a part of and move on to what I can only describe as a revelation of the mind and spirit. How could I move on?
