Growth Dissolved

From the July 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

For many years, I was aware of a hard growth below the surface of the skin of my thigh. It didn’t really bother me, except that some believed it could turn into a serious problem at some point.

As the years grew on, so did the lump, and it began to change the contour of my leg. I became extremely self-conscious of it and I longed to see it healed in Christian Science, but the distractions of daily life, and the self-perceived lack of urgency, caused my prayers to be sporadic.

There came a time when I knew I needed to address this problem, one way or another. The circulation in my leg seemed to be affected, and there were other signs that were not encouraging. I knew I had a choice in how to treat this, either through material methods or through Christian Science.
