Clinical Depression Healed
F. M., Maryland
God has truly blessed me. I was in the mental darkness of what is called clinical depression with several hospital bouts over the last five years, though I had been a student of Christian Science for some thirty years, belonging to two different Christian Science churches. I could not say I was a Christian Scientist, because obviously I was not succeeding.
Last year I had the great good fortune of finding the Plainfield Christian Science Church, Independent on the internet. Being generously welcomed and working with a practitioner there, I found the spirit of the truth that had been missing, and my life rather quickly began to turn around. And I can say that I am now, despite continuing challenges of situation, truly filled with joy. On a recent Roundtable discussion about what it is to be a Christian Scientist, I felt afterwards somehow my thought had been lifted to a new level of understanding of how we live and move and have our being in God.
This afternoon when I left the dentist after a cleaning check, she said to me, “You’re my last patient today and you’ve make a good one for me, because of your bright, shining smile.” Thank God for this healing of depression, the prayers of the practitioner, and for all I am learning in the Plainfield Church.
