Testimonies of Healing

A significant victory

From the July 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

“The best sermon ever preached is Truth practised and demonstrated by the destruction of sin, sickness, and death,” writes Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 201). Every healing exemplifies this.

One day a dark spot appeared on my abdomen, and it soon spread into a number of open sores. I stayed quietly confident in what I had learned from Christian Science about my oneness with God and about God’s ability to heal. As the Bible says, “For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength” (Isaiah 30:15). 

I could not lie flat on the bed at night to sleep, but was able to find rest propped up with pillows all around me. No time was lost from my office or any other duties. The theme of treatment for myself each day and night was Christ Jesus’ words, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light” (Matthew 6:22). This meant to me that if I was one with God, then I was absolutely, solely spiritual—not mixed up with matter or anything that wasn’t good.
