RELEASING RESENTMENT HEALED ME

One day about four years ago, I noticed an unsightly wart on my hand. At first I ignored it, but then it began to annoy me. I realized I needed to be more proactive, so I turned to prayer as I've been taught in Christian Science—something I've done all my life when confronted with challenges of any kind.

My initial prayers addressed the situation on a physical level, so I was going about it all wrong. I acknowledged the wart as physically unwanted and unsightly, but it was as if I was trying to get prayer to remove it. Instead, I needed to turn my attention to the spiritual fact that God is Love itself, and my inherent perfection as God's loved child, God's reflection, meant I simply couldn't express any type of imperfection. As I continued to pray, I began to reason more correctly from this standpoint of intrinsic spiritual perfection, rather than using prayer to "fix." Soon, something that was uncovered in my thought surprised me.
