A change of heart and renewed appreciation for church led to a healing I had. For over a year, I had experienced constant pain in one of my legs. It was frequently difficult to stand up without assistance, and walking was an ongoing challenge. During this time I prayed about a number of things, including the physical limitations associated with aging, and I acknowledged that the real source of my strength is God. At different times I also called on a Christian Science practitioner for metaphysical treatment.
At a time when I was no longer receiving Christian Science treatment, and there appeared to be little improvement, I sought help through physical therapy. However, after a lengthy regimen, the pain returned more intensely than before.
Later, I went for a medical diagnosis and received intimidating news. While waiting for a follow-up appointment, which was delayed by several months, I became convinced that there wasn’t going to be a material solution and that the only possible healing was spiritual. It was then that I turned wholly to Christian Science.
