For a number of years past my life has been so blessed...

From the September 1904 issue of The Christian Science Journal


For a number of years past my life has been so blessed through the teachings of Christian Science, that I want to add my testimony to that of the ever-increasing multitude who acknowledge its benign influence.

Science has enabled me to overcome, by the sole application of its rules of practice, many cases of sickness, fear, accident, and to show marked progress in general health and capacity for work, in spite of a constitution generally termed delicate. But of far greater moment is the moral and spiritual advancement resulting from constant efforts to put away pride, criticism, temper, together with many other errors: and the gain of a conviction that there does exist an ever-present, all-loving Father,— omnipotent good,— whose protection is available for every one, to bear him in perfect safety through the severest assaults of evil. When subtle claims of error have at times clouded my consciousness, and consequent sufferings have failed to yield readily to the declaration of truth, but have grown more and more acute, — how keenly have I then realized the necessity of resting absolutely in this conviction of the eternal, all-enfolding presence of divine Love, before which no opposing power can stand. This grand truth, persistently maintained, has cast out the error, and restored the rightful harmony of mind and body. I cannot speak too gratefully of our Christian Science periodicals, which have proved such an unfailing source of strength and inspiration at each stage of scientific growth.

With my whole heart I thank God for the infinite blessings of His love, and for the gift to this age of one whom He has marvelously guided, through long years of toil and self-immolation, to the discovery of the Science of Life and the demonstration to the world of its universal efficacy.
