I have been practicing Christian Science since 2001, when a colleague first introduced me to its teachings while I was working at an institute for technical education in my city, where I am still employed. Since that time I have had Christian Science class instruction and experienced numerous healings by relying on God, and Christian Science has given me the confidence to do so.
I am testifying here to a healing of painful inflammation and swelling in one of my breasts. I noticed these symptoms in August of 2017, and I was very frightened. I shared my fears with my husband. For the previous two months I had also not had my regular period, and I began thinking this might be a serious condition. I immediately called a Christian Science practitioner and asked for treatment. She agreed to help and reassured me about God’s allness and goodness. I felt I was safe in God’s hands.
After talking with the practitioner, I saw the importance of not focusing on the symptoms and so making a reality of them. The practitioner gave me selections to study from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, including this one from page 391, in a chapter about practicing Christian Science: “Instead of blind and calm submission to the incipient or advanced stages of disease, rise in rebellion against them. Banish the belief that you can possibly entertain a single intruding pain which cannot be ruled out by the might of Mind, and in this way you can prevent the development of pain in the body.”
