Sickness isn't inevitable

The Christian Science Monitor

When flu strikes, most people feel that there isn't much to be done except to stay in bed and ride out the barrage of symptoms. People spend vast sums each year trying to reduce the discomfort, but medicine offers no cure for this periodic scourge.

The fact is, we aren't helpless victims of disease. Ordinary people, just like you and me, have proved that a person can not only be healed of flu symptoms, he can attain an ongoing immunity from this pestilence.

The good news is that each of us can call on powerful spiritual resources to defeat flu symptoms and to keep ourselves free from infectious disease. When I say "spiritual resources" I'm not talking about the power of the human mind on the body and immune system. What I'm talking about is the truly divine healing resources we discover through gaining a better understanding of God and our relationship to Him.
