Through loving obedience alone can I express my gratitude...

From the September 1904 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Through loving obedience alone can I express my gratitude for the many blessings received through the knowledge and application of Christian Science. I have seen many forms of disease healed through the applied knowledge of this grand truth. Among the many cases were, consumption, broken bones, partial blindness, deafness, typhoid fever, and scarlet fever. Nine years ago. after having exhausted all material remedies, with supplications to God in the orthodox way, I was given up to die, resigned to the will of God. In my blindness, as I knew nothing about it, I was very reluctantly persuaded to try Christian Science. My healing was slow. I encountered many obstacles and had many struggles which were met and wholly overcome. The third day after having Christian Science treatment I began to improve slowly and was very much encouraged that I had lived without medicine for three days, which for years I had thought impossible.

I then began to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," which indeed unlocked a closed book, revealing to me the spiritual signification of the Bible, and I made it my daily companion, with Science and Health. I have found at all times and under all circumstances that this truth is an ever-present and effectual help. While I adore and acknowledge God as the Giver of all good, I desire through loving obedience to express my gratitude to our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, who so lovingly and wisely points out the way to worship God "in spirit and in truth," here and now.—
