I've long been grateful for the inspiring testimonies published in the Christian Science magazines. They've contributed much to my spiritual growth and understanding of the healing power and presence of God's Word as taught in the Bible: "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner off the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Heb. 4:12). A recent experience I had involved going deeper with these ideas.

One Saturday evening in December 2008, I returned home after an enjoyable dinner with friends and family. As I got out of the car to go into the house, however, I suddenly found that my legs were barely supporting me, and there was extreme pain. I didn't hesitate to immediately turn to God in prayer, as I knew from experience that prayer in Christian Science is totally reliable. I declared out loud that this condition was a lie about me that I was not about to accept as true. Mary Baker Eddy's writings make clear that discordant physical conditions don't originate in the body, but are wholly mental, and are eradicated by understanding the truth about God and our relationship to Him.
