Christly love brings healing

From The Christian Science Journal - May 12, 2016

Originally written in Portuguese, this first appeared in the May 2016 Portuguese, Spanish, French, and German editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

I give thanks to God for the inspiration to share a healing and a problem solved as a result of genuine love for my neighbor.

The healing happened in Soyo (Zaire province, Angola) in 1998. I had been transferred to that small town from Luanda, where I had worked as a teacher in the Ministry of Education. In Luanda, I had taught in the Sunday School of the informal Christian Science group of Hoji ya Henda, which now is Second Church of Christ, Scientist, Luanda.

One night, I woke up with chest pain and could hardly breathe. I also couldn’t pray. At that moment, I remembered the kind words that my Sunday School students had told me at my farewell to Luanda. They told me that God blesses us and takes care of us. I felt completely enveloped by the tenderness, love, and purity expressed by those children and was touched by the spiritual truth of their words. Within a short time all the symptoms disappeared, and I peacefully went back to sleep. I never again experienced similar symptoms.
