Testimonies of Healing

Healing of gout

From the March 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I remember the time growing up in India when my father introduced me to the Christian Science concept of God as wholly good and not the cause of evil, or the creator of anything bad. As a child I took to it, as I knew intuitively that God existed and was good. 

I have been a student of Christian Science for many years now and have had lots of proofs of God’s goodness and protective power (including some instantaneous healings). However, I sometimes struggled with trusting God completely for healing and instead sought relief through medical treatment and other remedies. 

Some years ago, I started developing extremely painful symptoms of what was diagnosed by doctors as gout. I started receiving medical treatment for pain relief and eventually preventative medical care. While still praying for healing, I found myself relying more and more on medication.
