Growing up IN THE 90s

God hears you, too

The Christian Science Monitor

I was fourteen and played clarinet in our high-school band. That was fun. But there was a problem: a wart on the back of my right thumb made it awkward for me to hold up my clarinet. There were several other warts on both hands, but I remember the one in particular because it made playing my clarinet so hard.

Because I'd already had a number of healings through prayer, I'd been thinking about how Christian Science could help me solve this problem, too. One day while I was walking the two miles home from school, a thought came to me. God doesn't have warts!

That almost made me laugh. God with warts? No way! I'd learned in the Christian Science Sunday School and from reading the Bible that God is Love. And He made everything good, everything pure and beautiful and perfect. What God made is spiritual, too, not material.
