Testimonies of healing

Healing of Twisted ankle

From the May 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One Sunday morning, I thought it would be fun to go for a run before church. As I was jogging down our steps, I was distracted by something in the street. My foot missed a step, and I suddenly found myself on the ground. 

The first thing I did was declare, “Nothing happened!” I knew that because God is all and wholly good, there is no place where evil is present and could have an effect. God is always governing every activity flawlessly, so I did not have to accept the false suggestion that a misstep had occurred and I would need to suffer for it. 

I recalled a helpful article I’d read in the Journal,It never happened!” in which the author explains: “What Christian Science healing entails is not a correction of matter, as though matter were substantial and intelligent, but rather a recognition of the eternal spiritual perfection of God’s man. And this results in the outward change we call ‘healing’ ” (Patricia Tupper Hyatt, May 1996).
