Have I Gone Far Enough?

An individual wants to be healed in Christian Science. He reads the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, goes to church, maybe even has a Christian Science practitioner pray for him, and lives what to him is an exemplary life. And yet, healing doesn't come. Why?

Humanly going through all the motions does not automatically guarantee Christian Science healing. The kind of thoughts we've actively or by default let control our consciousness determines our well-being. So what we've got to do is straighten out our thought. An individual wanting to be healed can ask himself, "Have I gone far enough in doing this?"

It's true we do have the right to expect improvement in our harmony and health when we are humanly doing what is right. But should our complete healing be delayed, let's face it: we haven't gone far enough.
