Since my introduction to Christian Science over forty-five years ago, I have been home ill fewer than ten days. This wonderful understanding of man's perfection in God has provided health, protection, guidance, and strength, to name a few of God's blessings for His creation.

Since my last testimony appeared in the Sentinel over seventeen years ago, I have had numerous healings. One in particular stands out. About five years ago, my arm became extremely weak, numb, and painful. I needed the assistance of my wife to put on my shirt and coat. In addition, I experienced extreme difficulty in raising the arm above my shoulder.

Following a few weeks of considerable discomfort, I became increasingly fearful. I realized fear to be an obstacle to healing, and I prayed deeply to understand more of the ever-present power of the Christ, God's expression in man, that would remove fear. As I understood more of divine Love, I felt growing peace until I was no longer afraid. Although the use of my arm continued to be limited and painful, I felt confident of healing because the fear had been replaced with the recognition that my being is spiritual, independent of matter.
