Many years ago I awoke one morning and found walking painful, unless done very slowly. The condition was like a hernia or other effects of a strain. I had to go to work (a desk job), so I first called a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. That evening I studied passages in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy assigned by the practitioner, pages 490 through 495. I took a stand against physical diagnosis, a stand justified by the statement (p. 494), "Jesus demonstrated the inability of corporeality, as well as the infinite ability of Spirit, thus helping erring human sense to flee from its own convictions and seek safety in divine Science." During this study I was lifted to a high level of joy and gratitude, based on the solid conviction that all would be well. And so it was. I rode to and from work for a week or so, while walking became easier each day. I then resumed my normal habit of walking to work, and was soon free of any disorder.

The completeness of this healing is illustrated by an added bonus. I found larger and more convenient living quarters at the same time—an apartment so satisfactory that I lived there for over seven years while my job remained in that community. The strenuous work of moving, soon after my physical healing, was accomplished without any strain. This healing has been permanent: I am still enjoying tennis and mountain climbing, and other activities requiring agility.
