Healing Need Not Be Delayed

Instantaneous healing is always the goal in the practice of Christian Science. However, when healing seems delayed or protracted, one should not give way to discouragement or despair. In proportion as the truth that God, Spirit, is All and that man is His image and likeness is actually realized and held to, healing takes place in consciousness and physical evidence of the improved mental and moral state must inevitably follow.

Receptivity to moral and spiritual growth, confident expectancy of good, gratitude for the ever-presence of good, and acknowledgment of the divine source of all good are indispensable factors in healing. These will counteract any inclination to indulge in self-pity and complaint about not being healed.
