Sentinel article prompts a healing

My wife and I were invited to go kayaking and view the manatees with a friend from church. When my wife couldn’t go, the friend and I went forward with the plan and had a great paddle.

Employment needs met

Years ago in my early 20s, I found myself unemployed. Although I had been applying for months to many different companies, I could find no work.

Incapacitating illness healed

Early one morning I awoke with an intense headache. I had never felt anything approaching such pain.

Back pain disappears

About a year ago, I was sitting on the couch with my laptop catching up on correspondence after a trip. Out of the blue, the muscles in my lower back began to cramp, causing quite a lot of discomfort.

Health and harmony restored

Recently, I noticed there seemed to be a particular emphasis on a certain illness—shingles—in advertisements on television, at my grocery store, and outside of local drug stores. These ads were promoting the idea that this disease is a part of us, but I recalled Christ Jesus’ statement, “Behold, the kingdom of God is within you” ( Luke 17:21 ).

Broken arm healed

“Every trial of our faith in God makes us stronger,” wrote Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 410 ).

Symptoms of pneumonia gone

As the date for the annual meeting of my Christian Science students’ association was approaching, I had not yet done a big part of my assignment—to read a particular biography about Mary Baker Eddy. In fact, for years I hadn’t wanted to read this biography.

No more drinking, smoking, and drugs

My first experience with Christian Science was when a friend gave me the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. It took me a while, but I read the book cover to cover.

Healing for a friend

Months before I joined The Mother Church and a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, I gave up drinking wine. I saw that I could turn to God as my source of joy and vivacity in social settings instead of alcohol.

Leg injury quickly healed

“Don’t go there!” a friend once lovingly but firmly told me when I was about to turn a conversation in an unhelpful, unproductive direction. I feel there is a spiritual lesson in that reminder.
