One morning I woke with stiffness and aching in one hand

One morning I woke with stiffness and aching in one hand. I turned my thought to God and acknowledged Him as the only power. That day I went about my usual study of the Bible Lesson (outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly) and my daily routines. In a couple of days, however, I was so debilitated by pain and stiffness throughout my body that I could hardly walk or think clearly.

I was not afraid, but I knew I needed to see more clearly the spiritual perfection of man in God's likeness. I sought the uplifting prayerful help of a Christian Science practitioner. She lovingly agreed to pray with me, and her strong statements of truth buoyed me and helped me to recognize my inherent innocence as God's child and to accept God's dear love for me.
