Testimonies of Healing

Forgiveness and a way forward

From the January 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I’ve had several instantaneous healings in my experience as a Christian Scientist. This healing took slightly over twenty years—but the instant the error was identified and then handled in Christian Science, it completely dissipated!

About two decades ago, several difficult life circumstances hit me simultaneously. I felt the foundation of my faith being severely shaken. First, a dear and trusted friend passed on suddenly. Then, my branch Church of Christ, Scientist, dissolved. And after many months of prayer on my part and trying to work out the problems in our marriage, my husband decided he wanted a divorce. 

I became filled with sorrow, anger, and confusion about these events. What had I done wrong? Was I being punished? What was I not seeing? I knew those thoughts were born of the erroneous belief that God can impart other than good to His creation. These negative thoughts and questions had nothing to do with the spiritual truth that bases the teachings of Christian Science, yet I couldn’t seem to grasp the truth.
