Testimonies of Healing

I have read so many testimonies...

From the January 1919 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I have read so many testimonies in the Journal and Sentinel that have helped me on my upward path that I feel, were I to continue receiving but giving nothing in return, I would not be fulfilling the law of Love.

A little over a year ago I took up the study of Christian Science, and since then darkness has been turned into light. I had just reached the stage where one starts doubting the truth of religion. I could not doubt there was a Supreme Being, and did not give up praying after a fashion, but that was all. One day I suddenly realized how I was then, and always had been, bargaining with God. that if He would answer my prayer, I would serve Him. As I looked back I could see how He had answered almost all my prayers and had taken care of me through many trying times, and yet I was not serving Him. That made me very humble, and my only prayer was to be led into the truth.

Soon afterwards a friend lent me Science and Health, but after reading the first chapter and not understanding it I put the book aside, particularly as it seemed to contradict my idea of the Bible. A little later I was led to read it again, and this time I read it through, with the Result that I found Love, Truth, Life, and health. At that time I was suffering from stomach disorder and could not eat a great many things I liked. While reading Science and Health I ate anything and never had any bad results, and I have been well ever since.
