Swollen Eye Healed
A while ago I gave a testimony in church about how a particular passage in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures helped me in praying about someone very dear to me. It is found on page 63 and it begins: "In Science man is the offspring of Spirit. The beautiful, good, and pure constitute his ancestry."

One morning recently I woke up and one eye was swollen. I couldn't open it and the eyelid was very red and it hurt. The first thing I thought of was this quotation. I quietly repeated it out loud: "In Science man is the offspring of Spirit. The beautiful, good, and pure constitute his ancestry." I reasoned that as the offspring of Spirit, God, I could only express beauty, goodness and purity. This alone is my ancestry.

In a few minutes the swelling subsided and I was able to open the eye. The redness continued and I had to be careful not to touch the eye inadvertently. The paragraph continues: "His origin is not, like that of mortals, in brute instinct, nor does he pass through material conditions prior to reaching intelligence." So I reasoned that I didn't have to pass through stages to be healed.

The paragraph concludes: "Spirit is his primitive and ultimate source of being; God is his Father, and Life is the law of his being." Each time I was tempted to touch or look at the eye, I would remind myself that God is my Father and Life is the law of my being. I didn't have to check on my eye; God, my Father, my lawgiver, was taking care of whatever was needed. I could focus on "the beautiful, good, and pure".

Shortly, the redness disappeared and my eye was healed.

I am grateful for Christian Science and for the care with which Mary Baker Eddy wrote Science and Health.

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.)
