From the May 1998 issue of The Christian Science Journal


A few years ago I started to have several physical problems that seemed to be overwhelming to me. Depression, fear, and abnormal eating habits were disrupting my life. This situation continued for several months, and I finally came to the point that I felt eating was impossible. I even thought I might pass on. I finally called a teacher of Christian Science and told her what I was experiencing. She invited me to stay at her home while I prayed regarding this healing. I initially rejected the offer, but I was getting so thin and had so little energy that I later agreed.

I knew that I needed to feel God's loving care for me. I had seen so much proof that Christian Science treatment is effective that I knew that if I gave my full devotion to God, healing would be inevitable. My family said goodbye to me, confident that I would be healed.

When I arrived at my friend's home, I started working at once on understanding better who God is and who I am as His reflection. I researched the term dominion. I knew that God gave man dominion over everything, as stated in the first chapter of Genesis. Nothing could take away what was rightfully mine. I was the perfect reflection of the divine original.
