Severe burns disappear through radical reliance on Christian Science

"Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift" (II Cor. 9:15). I found Christian Science when my life was very troubled, when I was enduring anguish of mind and body. It took eight years to uncover and destroy "the little foxes" in my own thinking that were causing the troublesome time. But those eight years were the happiest I had ever known, even though the mental suffering was so intense at times that only through radical reliance on my knowledge of Christian Science was I able to survive and keep my concept of life on a spiritual basis. I learned many lessons and was healed of many undesirable traits of character. Mary Baker Eddy tells us in our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 23), "Wisdom and Love may require many sacrifices of self to save us from sin." It was inspiring and encouraging to see error uncovered step by step that it might be destroyed, and in the place of misunderstanding and discord to have understanding and harmony established.

I witnessed many physical healings during those eight years. One day I was preparing baked beans. As I was pulling the baking dish out of the oven, the entire rack came out, and the boiling beans were spilled on me from my waist to my knees. I had on a thin gown at the time, and my legs were severely burned. I was quick to declare the truth, never once admitting that anything had happened to harm me. I called a practitioner, and he repeated many truths to me from the Bible and our textbook. He told me to go on with my activities and not to look at the burns again. I followed his directions with no discomfort. All the time I had experienced no pain whatsoever. I endeavored to be obedient and steadfast in Truth, and in a week only a slight redness remained, which disappeared in a short time.
