TWO 'FAST' HEALINGS

In December 2003, on the brink of exam week at the university where I teach, I began experiencing incapacitating flu symptoms. When I called a Christian Science practitioner to request prayerful support, she reminded me of the following from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: "When the illusion of sickness or sin tempts you, cling steadfastly to God and His idea. Allow nothing but His likeness to abide in your thought" (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 495).

At first, I focused on the phrase "the illusion of sickness." Classifying sickness as an illusion helped me view the symptoms I was experiencing as nothing more than "smoke and mirrors" conjured up to trick me into dishonoring God by believing in something unlike His goodness. This perspective calmed me, but I was still confined to bed, physically incapacitated.
