Testimonies of Healing

When my eyes were first opened...

From the November 1924 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When my eyes were first opened to the truth as taught in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I experienced the healing of an astigmatic condition of the eyes, and was enabled to put aside my glasses. For several years I was a loyal student of Mrs. Eddy's works; but spurious literature was put into my hands, and slowly a mist came over my consciousness—and I again was forced to wear glasses. It was a long time before I saw how I was straying from the light; but one day, when the darkest hour had come, I turned to a loving, loyal practitioner for light. She quickly showed me that spurious literature is darkness; and with the light I again was enabled to cast aside my glasses and rejoice in the lesson I had learned.

Needless to say, I am humbly grateful to God, and to our revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for her clear exposition of Truth as given in her works; "grateful for merited rebuke" (Science and Health, p. 9); and also for the privilege of being a member of the branch church of this city and engaging in the activities of Christian Science work.—
