Hair growth restored

From the May 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Some time ago there were many good things happening in my life, but there were also some changes happening, and I was concerned. And it was a very busy time. We had a lovely holiday visiting my son in Montenegro, but while I was there I noticed that I was starting to lose an excessive amount of hair from an area of my head, to the extent that part of my scalp was starting to show. After I returned from travelling, my hairdresser noticed on various visits that the area appeared to be getting bigger.

The first aspect I had to deal with was fear. After one of my visits to the hairdresser, a Bible verse came to thought, and I opened my Bible and found it very quickly. It was Christ Jesus’ words, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered” (Matthew 10:30). I pondered it for a long time that day, including the verses before and after, and considered its meaning and why Jesus said it. I felt totally cared for and loved by God, and it was a lovely feeling. I continued to pray with that verse, and I prayed to know that I was a complete spiritual idea of God, lacking nothing, whole now and always. I knew that any supposed lack of any kind was unreal, because there is no lack in God’s ever-present goodness.

I didn’t make any new hair appointments, and I did what I could so that I didn’t draw attention to the problem.
