‘This healing was my Christmas gift’

I have experienced joy, peace, and physical healings from the study of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Last year I was in the kitchen helping with the Christmas dinner. As I opened the oven door to retrieve a dish, my hand came too close to the oven coils, and I burned my hand.

My immediate response was to look away from my hand and declare silently that I was OK and nothing had happened to harm me. Why? I did this because the spiritual truths that I have learned in my study of Christian Science and the Bible supported a dismissal of inharmony and a declaration of God’s, divine Love’s, power. As the image and likeness of God, I could reject any sense of pain. As a spiritual idea, my substance was not material, which meant that I did not have to accept the pain as true about me.

We'd love to hear from you!
