“Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true.” –John 8:14
He who knows what is truth, speaks of what is as eternal life, and of conditions that have passed away as temporary beliefs.
It was early one morning in the year 1885, during an hour of earnest meditation and prayerful seeking, that I asked the following questions in faith, believing that they would be answered, with a willingness to abide the decision, whatever it might be. “Is there any way out of these conditions? Is there any power in the vast universe that can heal me?” The immediate and all-convincing response was not an audible voice, but was an intuitive response by the life-giving spirit, which penetrated the body through and through, and which illumined and vivified its every atom with newness of life. From the depths of Divine perception and understanding I was caused to know and realize that if I got well it would be by the power of the Infinite Spirit. I arose from my chair, and walking the floor said, “If, if, if I ever get well, then there is one way out of these conditions; then I must seek that way.”
At that time I had received medical advice, which I endeavored to obey implicitly, and had been under medical treatment most of the time for more than twenty years.
