Testimonies of Healing

Internal injury healed

From the December 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

After leaving home and moving to a house of my own, I was working on some carpentry and injured myself, such that there was evidence of internal bleeding. It is an understatement to say that I was frightened. 

I was alone at the time, and tried to address the problem with my understanding of Christian Science, without apparent success. My anxiety was such that I rang a friend who was a Christian Science practitioner. While I do not remember her exact words, I remember vividly that within moments of putting down the phone, I realized how much I had been frightened. Specifically, I was frightened of a material predicament—something that I knew from my study of Christian Science was spiritually unreal. The sense of fear melted away, and was replaced by a sense of stillness. I was deeply grateful for this wonderful revelation—for realizing the spiritual reality of the situation. And for immediately becoming so much calmer.

The symptoms did not change at that point, but I knew that with the clarity and spiritual insight I had gained—that I was a whole, intact idea of God—I would make progress.
