Don't forget to acknowledge the healing

To acknowledge the spiritual healings we've had is not only strengthening and progressive, it glorifies our creator.

It had been a long evening. Our young son had been very uncomfortable with an earache. There were guests in our home, and with an active family the demands seemed great. But because our children had been healed many times through prayer in Christian Science, I did not hesitate to spend the time necessary to turn to God for the help that was needed.

As I worked diligently to comfort the child, a verse from Isaiah came to mind: "The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back." Knowing that childlike thought is innocent, neither rebellious nor resistant but receptive to God's healing message of love, I found that my own tension and fear faded. In a short time the child fell asleep, resting peacefully throughout the night. By morning, the ear had opened and drained, and he was once again his normal, playful self. He didn't again suffer from earache, and our son is now an adult with the keen ear of a professional musician.
