Marriage repaired and health restored

From the October 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

For several years I was troubled by an unhappy marriage and resentful of my husband’s inconsistent treatment of our children and me—being kind and loving one minute and mean and demeaning the next. Since I was someone who liked to please, I wrongly allowed my husband’s dominance and put-downs to rule the family. My efforts at peacemaking only resulted in this erratic behavior continuing, and it was at the expense of my health and our children’s welfare. 

When I discovered painful lumps in both of my breasts, I became fearful. But I strongly believed that God could heal me. 

During my daily study of Christian Science, I came across the Bible verse, “I am the Lord that healeth thee” (Exodus 15:26). This was welcome reassurance that God, divine Truth and Love, not only could but would heal me. I also read in the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, “Heal through Truth and Love; there is no other healer” (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 8).
