Testimonies of Healing

Debilitating migraines gone

From the May 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (II Timothy 1:7). This beautiful biblical passage became a living reality in my experience. 

In 2001 I was led to make a move from Texas to Ohio to be with my mother and support her. This move proved to be a right idea and a lovely, mutual blessing. However, within a few months after the move, I began to be afflicted with frequent, debilitating migraines.

As I prayed one day, I recalled a time when I had been living away from home and my parents had separated. During that time I had a migraine that rendered me briefly unconscious. Upon regaining consciousness, I prayed with “the scientific statement of being” in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and this statement instantly became clear: “Matter is the unreal and temporal” (p. 468).
