Testimonies of Healing

Healing of internal disorder

From the June 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

For several years, I struggled with internal pain that was debilitating at times. I curtailed or gave up activities like cycling, hiking, or traveling because sitting or standing for long periods was difficult to do comfortably. Sometimes I was unable to go to work.

I was initially tempted to have a medical diagnosis, but I suspected that medical solutions, even while promising results, too often imposed limitations. So instead, I dedicated myself as never before to Christian Science. I yearned to understand this revelation of Truth and to live it, not just study it to get a healing so I could resume cherished activities.

Discouraged one day by persistent discomfort, my eyes fell on a statement from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “It is the spiritualization of thought and Christianization of daily life, in contrast with the results of the ghastly farce of material existence; . . . which really attest the divine origin and operation of Christian Science” (p. 272). There’s more to the statement, but it was suddenly clear that “spiritualization of thought and Christianization of daily life” were key to the practice of Christian Science, to living it.
