Testimonies of Healing

Stomach pain healed

From the May 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

For several days I would suffer from acute stomach pain whenever I had something to eat. It didn’t matter what I’d eaten. I had been stressed about a challenging situation and thought it was perhaps just a stress reaction, but I realized that looking for a cause for something erroneous, something not created by God, was not the way to go.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures explains: “Because Truth is infinite, error should be known as nothing. Because Truth is omnipotent in goodness, error, Truth’s opposite, has no might” (Mary Baker Eddy,p. 367). I reasoned that this erroneous condition could have nothing to stand on and that since Truth, God, is all-powerful, error (anything unlike God) could not have any say at all about my being. 

The pain persisted, however, so I called a Christian Science practitioner, who immediately went to work praying. In a short time I felt relief, and further proof of the healing came the next morning after eating breakfast, when I had no pain or discomfort whatsoever. I have been free of that ailment in the more than a year and a half since. And the feeling of intense stress fell away, too.
