I have received so much benefit from the testimonies
in the Sentinel and Journal that I send mine, hoping
it may cheer some struggling heart. I was reared by
kind and loving Christian parents and was a member
of an orthodox church for over twenty years, but I was
never satisfied. I was filled with fear and bound down
by the false gods of this world, - sin, disease, and poverty;
consequently every way I turned, and in everything
I attempted to do, I was met with disappointment and
failure; but God was leading me into a different life.
My interest was first awakened to Christian Science
about thirteen years ago, and I have been a willing disciple
ever since. Through the reading of Science and
Health I was healed of chronic catarrh and laryngitis,
and it also enabled me to lay off my glasses. Christian
Science has not only helped me mentally, morally, and
physically, but the greatest blessing of all is the spiritual
uplifting which enabled me to know that God is both
able and willing to care for His children, if we are but
willing to do our part and bear the cross which, though
it seems heavy at times, always brings a sure reward.
Christian Science has not only helped me, but it has
enabled me to help others.
The Bible is a new book to me. I now see what
Jesus meant when he said, "Come unto me, all ye that
labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
My heart goes out in gratitude to Mrs. Eddy for the
work she has done and is still doing for the world, and
to God I am most grateful that He has guided me into the
truth, that I may have life, and have it more abundantly.
