'I WAS COMPLETELY HEALED'

Sometime during the last few years, one of my shoulders seemed to lose the ability to function normally, painfully restricting the motion of my arm. Ordinary activities became a challenge—unlocking the car doors on the opposite side of my van, dressing myself, reaching for objects in high places. Worse yet was the barrage of fearful thoughts that claimed this condition was "part of getting older," "likely to spread and become worse," etc.

I turned to my knowledge of God, gained from my lifelong study of Christian Science, and applied it through prayer. I understood that age is the product of a human belief in time and limitation, but as children of God we can claim exemption from this belief through understanding that God did not create limitations. God is eternal good; His idea can't wear out, become decrepit, or useless. Age and decay have no power over God or His idea—you and me. So I began praying by firmly claiming my identity as a child, or idea, of God. I denied that any fears could have power over me, and instead filled my thought with good.
