Health and harmony restored

From the June 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One day in October 2009, I was driving down a hill with my daughter, who was in the passenger seat next to me. Suddenly, I had no feeling in my right foot. Immediately, the first thing that came into my thought to say very loudly was: “I have a perfect foot.” I declared that perfection is the truth of my spiritual being.

This loss of feeling continued up my leg to the right side of my body into my arm and shoulder. I continued declaring firmly what I knew to be true through my study of Christian Science. I wouldn’t allow any room in my thought for anything beside what I know to be true—my whole being is spiritual, therefore intact, complete, and couldn’t be disturbed.

I knew my daughter was praying and supporting me. I felt I was driving safely and slowly, so neither my daughter nor I was in danger by my being at the wheel. I drove a short distance and parked in a lot where we were going to meet my sister for lunch.
