It has long been my desire to express...

From the March 1936 issue of The Christian Science Journal


IT has long been my desire to express gratitude for many blessings received since taking up the study of Christian Science. Before knowing of this Science, I was never well. I was suffering from a form of anemia, was often under medical treatment, and practically living on so-called "tonics"; but during the past nine years Christian Science has been my only physician, and I have received wonderful help from it, both physically and spiritually. Chronic constipation from childhood has been permanently healed without any specific treatment, and severe colds and headaches have been overcome by my knowing their unreality.

Recently I was faced with unemployment and financial difficulties, and fear and discouragement crept in. My thought was turned to God as true substance, the source of all supply; not seeking material work for material needs, but to know that God's spiritual idea can lack no good thing, and that our human need is the understanding of the law of God expressed in right thoughts and actions. Much mental work had to be done before a sense of resentment and injustice was finally overcome, but when error was seen to be error, having no place, no power, harmony prevailed. Mrs. Eddy's statement, "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need" (Science and Health,p. 494), has been proved repeatedly, also, more understanding has been gained from some of the new hymns in the revised Christian Science Hymnal.

Physically and morally Christian Science is proving of inestimable value, slowly but surely eradicating the false, educated beliefs of childhood, also many undesirable traits of disposition. I am grateful to God, and to our Leader, who, through her spiritual-mindedness, revealed to this age the Christ Science whereby we can prove that "now are we the sons of God;" also for membership in The Mother Church and a branch church, and for the patient, loving help of practitioners.—
