HEALED OF RECURRING PAIN
I would like to express gratitude for a healing I had several years ago of lower back pain. The pain would come and go throughout the day, and as it persisted for several weeks, the fear of it gripped my thought and made me despondent.
It was then that I reached out to God for guidance. Like opening your front door to welcome visitors, I opened my thought to whatever God was sending me for comfort and instruction. Mary Baker Eddy wrote in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures that "Truth and Love come nearer in the hour of woe ..." (p. 567). For me that was a priceless promise that when our experience seems at its darkest, God draws nearer to comfort with love, and guide and purify with truth.
Earlier in the same paragraph, Mrs. Eddy wrote about angel thoughts and their healing purpose. She says: "The Old Testament assigns to the angels, God's divine messages, different offices. Michael's characteristic is spiritual strength. He leads the hosts of heaven against the power of sin, Satan, and fights the holy wars. Gabriel has the more quiet task of imparting a sense of the ever-presence of ministering Love. These angels deliver us from the depths" (pp. 566-567). I knew that Mrs. Eddy also explains the spiritual interpretation of angels, in part, as "God's thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect" (Science and Health, p. 581).
