Healed of multiple sclerosis

From the August 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Many years ago, I began experiencing symptoms in my legs and feet that made walking difficult. In my study of Christian Science, I had learned that God is the true source of our capabilities, so I leaned on God to enable me to carry on with my duties as a schoolteacher and a mother of young children. 

These words of the prophet Isaiah gave me strength: “For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee” (Isaiah 41:13). 

I knew that healing is really an “inside job” requiring receptivity to inspiration and a willingness to elevate thought to divine consciousness. With the help of a Christian Science practitioner, I prayed daily to overcome fear by understanding that God is All and “there is none else beside him” (Deuteronomy 4:35).
