FEAR DESTROYED, PAIN ERADICATED

A year ago, my husband, Nick, and I were traveling our motor home throughout the outback of Australia. While we were visiting Albany, in Western Australia, I began experiecing sharp, intermittent pains in my stomach. At first I didn't take too much notice. I thought the pain would just go away. But after several days, I was uncomfortable much of the time and becoming afraid about what I might be suffering from. I decided I needed to start praying for myself. Having been healed many times through prayer in Christian Science, I was confident that this could be healed, too.

At one points as I was thinking about this condition, I remembered a discussion I'd had a few weeks earlier. A close friend had told me about stomach ulcers that had troubled her. Our conversation had made an impression on me. Her description of the discomfort she'd been having disturbed me, to the extent that I had been afraid about my own health and well-being. Given the mental nature of disease, I began to view the pain I was now experiencing as a wake-up call. I felt it was a sign that I had allowed myself to be influenced by a frightening description of that disease.
