Testimonies of Healing

Severe foot injury quickly healed

From the November 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

About two years ago I had a bad fall while walking in my garden at home. I was wearing thick winter socks, so I did not at first see the injury, but it felt as though there were broken bones in one foot, and the pain was severe. 

Immediately I turned to the spiritual facts of being to counter the suggestion of pain. I prayed with “the scientific statement of being” in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, which reads: “There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual” (p. 468). 

Through pondering these ideas, I saw that I could never fall from the knowledge of myself as the whole, spiritual idea that God created. I understood that man’s being is not in a material body, which meant the pain I was feeling was an illusion. I took each of these blessed truths and clung to them, and the pain subsided.
