Me? Give a testimony?

From the January 1992 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When we are healed by turning to God through prayer, our gratitude is immeasurable. In fact, we may find ourselves thanking God many times. But even though we yearn to do so, testifying about our healing at a Christian Science Wednesday evening meeting may seem inconceivable to us because of self-consciousness or fear. This is not an uncommon feeling, especially when we're desiring to give our first public testimony.

Reasons such as "I don't know how to express it well," "I'm too nervous," "It isn't an exceptional healing," or "Others will be judging me" may prevent us from standing and sharing. But if we keep listening to these aggressive thoughts, we'll never get up. Furthermore, we'll feel justified about not getting up!

So what is the answer? How can we refute the fear and self-doubt that would keep us from testifying and giving glory to God?
