I am deeply grateful for how Christian Science healed me of a sudden throat problem a few months ago. As I arrived at my branch Church of Christ, Scientist, on a Wednesday night to serve as First Reader, there was a strange burning sensation in my throat.
My mother was raised in Christian Science, and I attended a Christian Science Sunday School during my childhood years. But I didn’t “make it my own” until I was a young adult.
I was badly hurt when I was hit by a forklift in an accident at the manufacturing plant where I work. Before I was taken to a hospital for emergency treatment, the on-site doctor examined me.
I’ve loved this scriptural statement tucked into First Samuel: “The soul of my lord shall be bound in the bundle of life with the Lord thy God” ( 25:29 ). One translation of this verse is: “The Lord your God will keep you safe, as someone guards a precious treasure” (Good News Translation).
One day while working in my garden, I fell backwards. Though I landed hard, I comfortably got up, seemingly uninjured.
I am deeply grateful to God for a physical healing that came very quickly and decisively through prayer in Christian Science. On a Sunday morning last year, I awoke with pain and stiffness in my neck.
A line in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy was a great help to me in my career some years ago when I was a fledgling businesswoman. It turned what seemed like a nightmare into an important spiritual lesson in trusting God to guide and govern my life.
One day in the spring of 2017, I felt a sharp pain in my body. After two days of dealing with the discomfort on my own, I knew something needed to change.
I am writing to express my gratitude for a Christian Science healing of kidney stones. There had been a number of cases of this ailment in our family.
I was a doubting Thomas. To me, Christian Science was this “weird religion” I could never accept.
