Kneecap injury healed

From the March 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Christian Science has nurtured and strengthened my relationship to God, and for that I am deeply grateful. This understanding has shown me ways to overcome limitation of all sorts. One of these instances happened a few years ago when I was playing soccer and fell with quite a force—landing on my knee. Afterward, it appeared my kneecap was broken in several places, and I was in a lot of pain. The first thing I did was call a Christian Science practitioner to support me in prayer.

I had been healed during Sunday church services and Wednesday testimony meetings so many times, so although I needed crutches, nothing was going to stop me from attending church that Sunday. The first part of this healing did come in church, as I was able to exit without the crutches, the pain lessening enough to put some weight on the leg. However, there was still some major swelling.

There is a lovely freedom I feel when I run, and I didn’t want to lose that. That desire to play soccer was a prayer that reached out from my heart to God. A thought came to me very strongly: Everything you’ve learned about the allness of God is either true or it’s not. Christian Science either heals or it doesn’t. Which one is it? There is no in between.
