Gratitude for a Lifetime of Protection   Leave a comment

The members of the Christian Science community in Canberra share their experiences and thoughts on Christian Science:

I am truly grateful for the teachings of Christian Science and how it throws light on the holy scriptures as we find them in our Bible.

Before being introduced to Christian Science I had some education in the Bible, having attended a protestant Sunday School. I was also aware of old testament Bible stories through reading from a precious old book given to my dear mother in the days when she was young.  That book which I loved to read was presented to her by the Salvation Army where her mother was a Salvation Army officer, and a very saintly woman. 

Also, I greatly enjoyed reading and because of the age and remoteness of our living there were no public libraries available or lending libraries in the schools. I don’t remember knowing anything much about the New Testament and the works of Jesus or his purpose of being sent to earth.

When I was in my late teens, I witnessed a beautiful healing when my mother sought help in Christian Science. With the prayerful help of a Christian Science practitioner who prayed for her she was able to rise from the depths of despair into the clear pure light and lift up her voice in praise to God.

Gradually Christian Science literature began to appear in our house, and out of curiosity and the desire to help my mother, as well as find out what was going on, I started to read it.  What I found was that I loved the logic of it, as step by step the articles unfolded the Christian Science way of interpreting the Bible.

This logic of the teachings still impresses me and reassures me that all things are possible to God and to glorify Him in my heart. Over the intervening years I myself have had many proofs of the power of God’s goodness. Combined with the logic and the growing understanding of God’s love for His precious children, I have been healed permanently of headaches, protected when driving, quick and harmonious child birth, safety during bushfires raging up to our home to mention but a few instances.

The words from the Doxology (Christian Science Hymnal – hymn 1) come to my thought and I will share those words:

Be thou, O God, exalted high, and as Thy glory fills the sky, so let it be on earth displayed, Til Thou art here and now obeyed.
