Painful condition healed

From the April 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One day in the spring of 2017, I felt a sharp pain in my body. After two days of dealing with the discomfort on my own, I knew something needed to change. I asked a Christian Science practitioner for help.

The practitioner agreed to pray for me and reminded me that I am loved by God and that I am made in His likeness, perfect and all good. I affirmed my perfection and held on to the idea that I could “banish the belief that you can possibly entertain a single intruding pain which cannot be ruled out by the might of Mind …” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 391).

While I was making spiritual progress, the condition seemed to grow worse and I was having a hard time sleeping since no position was comfortable.
