Grateful to find Christian Science

Originally published in the April 2017 French edition of The Herald of Christian Science.

I found Christian Science more than four years ago. “Eureka!” is what I immediately uttered after I started to read the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, Founder of the Church of Christ, Scientist. The sense of fulfillment I got from the teachings of this Science has never left me. 

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Matthew 7:7, 8). The promise contained in these words of Scripture was fulfilled in my long journey to Christian Science. 

I’ve always believed in God and in the possibility of being healed through prayer. And I’ve witnessed the benefits from my trust in God. But at one point, my life became miserable in several ways, and I resolved to ask God, in a better way than I had before, to show me the true path that would allow me to get closer to Him. After more than three weeks of fervent prayer, literally on my knees for periods of time, the response came. And this response was Christian Science.
