I have always depended on Christian Science

I have always depended on Christian Science. This testimony can't begin to define my gratitude for healings and protection over the years.

Early one winter I began to have trouble with an arm. A condition developed which grew so painful that I had trouble sleeping at night and could not use the arm at all. My husband, who is not a Christian Scientist, became very concerned. He felt the arm should be examined by a doctor to determine the nature of the difficulty. Since we had not been married long, he had not really witnessed anything he could recognize as a clear-cut physical healing through prayer. Finally I agreed to submit to an examination by an orthopedic surgeon, in order to allay my husband's fears.

Before we went for the appointment, I prayed, affirming my closeness to my Father-Mother God. I knew I was continuing to turn to divine Mind for help, not medicine. A statement from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy helped me (p. 284): "The intercommunication is always from God to His idea, man." On the basis of that, I was certain that my prayerful expectation would be answered, that all I would hear from anybody would be helpful, because God was communicating to His idea, that I would be led to understanding and healing and my husband would be peaceful, too.
