Testimonies of Healing

Twisted ankle healed

From the July 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

It was the Wednesday before Christmas several years ago. Running to catch the train home after work, I stepped off a curb wrong and twisted my ankle. I kept going and did make my train, but later that evening my ankle got increasingly uncomfortable. It eventually hurt so much that as I walked through the house, I found myself holding on to walls to keep weight off of it. I began to worry that I would have to stay home the next day because it would be too hard to get around.

Listening to my branch church’s Wednesday evening testimony meeting online, I turned my thought away from the physical difficulty and toward the spiritual truth I knew could heal me. I then listened to the replay of The Mother Church’s Wednesday testimony meeting webcast. The readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy on the subject of joy uplifted my thought. 

As I was sitting in bed, my ankle was quite painful and swollen. At that point, I knew I had a choice to make. I could either embrace the reality of my true being as God’s spiritual child or go down a path of physical disability for a few days. I definitely preferred the former!
