Internal distress vanished

From the August 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

About six years ago, I had an experience in which a greater understanding of the true, spiritual concept of body, and of the Holy Ghost, brought immediate healing. 

It was a Sunday, and that morning I had flown across the United States to my hometown. A memorial celebration for my dad had been planned for the next day. My dad, who was not a Christian Scientist, had been prominent in the community. When he passed, we organized a gathering for his many friends, family members, and colleagues to express their appreciation and pay their respects. I was to deliver one of the eulogies.

When I arrived, I found that a family member’s lovingly motivated gesture toward me and others in the family had backfired and created a very difficult situation. With the help of a Christian Science practitioner, the immediate challenge was handled with grace and resolved. However, as I retired for the night, I continued to mentally rehearse the difficult events of the day, and concerns about what might happen at the next day’s memorial and beyond began to creep in.
