Q: I’ve read testimonies that talk about the effort needed in realizing a healing. Then there are articles that seem to imply that we simply need to know all is well. Please explain.
A: Every healing in Christian Science is unique. Some come quickly and with little effort, while others take more time and prayer. In every case, Truth is asserting itself, revealing to us “new views of divine goodness and love,” which have only to be seen and acknowledged (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 66).
In Science, healing is about learning and growing spiritually, and at different points in our experience we may need to learn different things in different ways. It is always an opportunity to deepen our understanding of God, of who we are, and of our relationship to God, divine Love.
