I’ve been thinking about Jesus and his healing work more than ever before. I am particularly struck with this statement from Science and Health: “Jesus never spoke of disease as dangerous or as difficult to heal” (pp. 147–148). He wasn’t ruled by fear; neither did he wonder about what was going on with the physical body. He just relied on God to reveal the perfect nature of man. At no time have I found this concept more important than I did a year ago.
I had been visiting my parents for Christmas in Washington State, and while there, I awoke in the night with a feeling of nausea that seemed to ebb and flow as I lay in bed, trying to pray about the situation. My husband and I were due to fly home the next morning, and as I reached out to God in my prayers, I was able to handle this aggressive mental suggestion by recognizing and reaffirming the allness of God.
Even though I felt fine the next morning, I received a very strong angel message to change our flight home, which we were able to do at a very busy travel time of year—with little trouble and much gratitude. We flew home two days later and ushered in a white New Year at home in New England.
