One day years ago I started to feel intense pain in my shoulder. I couldn’t think of any cause for the injury, and at first I didn’t pay much attention to it, thinking it would go away.
However, as time went by, the pain only grew worse. Simple daily activities became challenging, and finding a comfortable position to fall asleep in was practically impossible. Friends and coworkers suggested various physical remedies. Others suggested the problem was simply an inevitable result of aging and that I would just have to learn to live with it.
I was tempted to use physical remedies to address the pain, but I wanted more than temporary relief. I wanted to be permanently free of this condition. I wanted healing! And I knew from the many healings I’d experienced through Christian Science that we can trust God when we look to Him for help.
