Obeying the directions brings healing

Have you ever thought of a need for healing as an opportunity to learn more of divine Love's care for you? Even though it sometimes seems we are separated from God, in truth we are always in His care because He is infinite Love.

Our true identity as God's idea, spiritual man, can never be out of His infinity or separated from His perfection. The Bible points to this fact in these comforting words: "For in him we live, and move, and have our being." Acts 17:28. In God's kingdom there is no discord, since He is wholly good and has created His idea, man, to reflect and express His perfection. Since God is always being expressed, health and harmony must also be present. So if we need healing, the basic questions may be: Are we really obeying the spiritually inspired directions for demonstrating God's presence that the Bible and Science and Health give us? And are we following those directions by the way we live?

One of these directions is found on page 261 of Science and Health. Mrs. Eddy writes, "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts." This direction brings out a vitally important fact to understand in Christian Science healing. Truth itself does the healing work.
