HEALED OF SEVERE SORE THROAT SYMPTOMS

In February 2008, I was preparing for two major singing auditions for graduate school programs. Several days before the first audition, I woke up with a sore throat and had difficulty swallowing. I went to the Christian Science Organization testimony meeting that morning at the college where I was teaching, and heard this quote from Science and Health: "Eternity, not time, expresses the thought of Life, and time is no part of eternity. One ceases in proportion as the other is recognized. Time is finite; eternity is forever infinite" (pp. 468–469 ).

This quote got me thinking more deeply about the concept of time. I was concerned that my voice would not be healed before the audition, but I knew I could rely on prayer for healing. Later, I began to prayerfully consider, "What does it really mean to live in eternity?" And the answer came: "It means I don't have four days for the healing to take place; I have eternity—which means now—not in a mortal-time sense, but within the state of being ever present with God, where 'time' is not a factor. There's no sense of pressure that the healing won't take place at the right time. In this eternal now, I'm living in the harmony of Love."
