Chronic hemorrhaging ceases

From the May 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I would like to give thanks for a recent healing. Over two years ago I began to experience what appeared to be the recurrence of my menstrual cycle. When I happened to mention this to a close relative, she was most concerned, as I had passed that stage of life a good while ago. And when the discharges continued daily, I became concerned too. I contacted a Christian Science practitioner for treatment, and for more than a year we worked together; she very lovingly prayed for me and supported my own prayers for healing. 

There were times when I experienced nagging pains and a lot of discomfort, and I became very fearful and felt bombarded with all sorts of negative thoughts. My husband, who supports my study of and reliance on Science, was nevertheless concerned that the problem was persisting, and several times he suggested I seek medical help. However, I declined to do so (a decision my husband accepted, lovingly), as I have had so many wonderful healings through Christian Science treatment.

Over the next several months I read a lot of metaphysically inspiring articles written by Christian Scientists, and I strove to keep my thoughts filled with spiritual ideas, all the while listening for God’s direction and being grateful for all the good I had and was experiencing. I found the hymns from the Christian Science Hymnal very comforting too. There were passages from the Bible that came very strongly to me in my times of need, such as “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: … I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” (Isaiah 41:10) and “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord” (Psalms 118:17).
