Clear Evidence of Healing
I wish to express my deep appreciation for a recent healing. About two months ago I began to sense an obstruction in my abdomen that hindered my deep breathing. As time passed, another obstruction began to manifest itself in another area of my abdomen.

While I had been praying, it was evident that I needed the help of a Christian Science practitioner. A call was made and many truths were expressed. One thought that I was given, and which I had used many times before, was: "Truth removes properly whatever is offensive."  (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 463) This said to me that Mind's action is always orderly, balanced, and effective.

I was praying with this and other statements of Truth when I was suddenly seized with an intense pain that doubled over my body. Shortly after, a second spasm occurred, and then complete release. That was the end of the problem! My friend and I had been scheduled to attend a meeting, and I was able to walk out of our apartment and attend the meeting in complete freedom. I continue to rejoice in a healing that was so clearly evident.

I am so grateful for our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy’s vision in providing us with the tools we need to demonstrate the Truth that makes us free.  (from John 8:32: Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.)

Wasp stings healed


Several years ago I was weeding behind our house when without warning I was stung several times by wasps. I ran away and sat down to collect my thoughts. "The curse causeless shall not come" occurred to me (see Prov. 26:2). I looked over at the house. There was an opening in the stone wall that faced the house. I could see wasps actively coming and going. I was not being attacked without cause; they had been defending their home. Another quotation occurred to me, this one from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy ( see page 514: 28) "All of God's creatures, moving in the harmony of Science, are harmless, useful, indestructible." So, I reasoned, I can't harm the wasps and they can't harm me because each of us is an expression of God. Soon the numerous stings subsided and I was able to carefully complete the weeding. We kept the children away from the area and later in early winter plugged up the opening.  I'm grateful that as Christian Scientists we are encouraged to look beyond a knee-jerk reaction to a circumstance and see the larger picture, one in which a loving God is in control.
