Three years ago, I awoke to find my active four-month-old kitten struggling to walk more than a few steps without lying down. I phoned a Christian Science practitioner to help me see and understand that this dear little kitten was, in spiritual reality, an unfettered idea of God, expressing agility and grace.
This past spring I was jogging alongside a road when I unknowingly stepped into a pothole and fell, severely twisting my ankle. With great effort I was able to get up and walk home, but over the next few hours there was considerable pain and increased swelling of my ankle and foot.
God provides the way to surmount every supposed obstacle with Truth and Love. Never have I ever learned from my study of the Bible that God does not help man.
For a number of years through my teens and early twenties, I struggled with shyness and social anxiety. I worried that my peers didn’t like me, and I didn’t want to call attention to myself.
Christ Jesus’ words were always very clear, precise, and powerful. This is because he spoke the word of God: “Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works” ( John 14:10 ).
I am long overdue in expressing my gratitude for Christian Science and the health and happiness it has brought into my life. My parents were not Christian Scientists, and I first heard of this teaching through my older brother’s girlfriend.
My sister and nephew came to visit me in Boston for the first time since I moved here. Because they don’t live close to mountains, my fiancé and I decided to take them on a short hike in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
I was married in the United States, and my husband and I lived there for three years until we moved to Mexico, where I had requested a work visa. I had to go to the border and cross over to the American side to pick it up.
During my senior year of college, my tennis team and I went on a trip to California to compete against other college tennis teams. During the first couple of days, I spent an extensive amount of time outside in the sun.
I’d like to express gratitude for a healing that I had some time ago that really proved to me that God is my help and strength. Over a period of several months, I noticed that I just didn’t have the strength and ability to do many of my normal activities.
