For a number of years I was a weary woman, not ill
enough in health to be called an invalid, but suffering
more than could be told with fatigue and weakness.
Feeling that this was God's will, I did not ask to be healed,
although I was constantly doctoring. I suffered with dyspepsia,
congestion of the liver, and many other things,
including weak eyesight. With all the medicine, and
with different changes for rest, I never regained health,
and thought I never should, so I prayed for grace to bear
my cross patiently for others' sake. One day, while
lying on my couch exhausted, which had become a frequent
experience, the words came to me, "Whatsoever
ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." I
rose, knelt down and said, O God, make me well. I
was telling a friend this and she kindly gave me a
Sentinel. Imagine my joy when I saw the testimonies of
healing! I believed them, remembering our Lord's words,
"Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have
believed." I obtained a copy of Science and Health and
before a week had passed I realized that if God was my
all I needed no glasses. My eyes were healed in a few
days, and since then I have never thought of glasses.
I was also cured of dyspepsia, and nothing that I have
eaten has hurt me since then. The belief in health laws
was next destroyed, by knowing that our heavenly Father
did not make them, and from this has come the beautiful
experience of the overcoming of fatigue.
For this alone I can never be thankful enough. True
indeed are the words, "They shall run, and not be weary."
This was more than a year ago, and I can say that not
once have I felt inclined to lie on the couch, nor have I
had a headache, although I am doing more work than
ever before. Fear has also been overcome in many ways.
