Sudden joy and a new life discovered

I found Christian Science when I overheard someone say it was a religion about understanding God. My ears perked up at that idea because in my spiritual searching I felt I hadn’t found any other religion or philosophy that made understanding God its focus. At the time I was suffering with many physical problems, as well as with intense depression, and I was steeped in psychology. I believed God was good, but I didn’t understand how I could have all these problems.

I attended a Sunday morning church service at a Church of Christ, Scientist. At first, I walked out thinking, “There’s nothing here,” but almost immediately another thought came that “sometimes what appears to work doesn’t,” like the years of help I’d sought. And sometimes what doesn’t seem like it would work does, like the church service.
