HIP AND LEG PAIN HEALED
Last spring, for a few months, I had been having a challenge with walking freely. My left hip and leg seemed to give out on my morning walk, and I felt pain and experienced a sensation of vibration. I always like to do morning prayer walks and runs when I have time, and this was significantly interrupting that activity.
At first, I determined to continue my walks to the extent I could because it was good activity, which I know is an expression of God, Life. Sometimes I could only walk a few blocks, but with every step I made sure it wasn't human willpower that was guiding me, but desire to express my natural freedom. If it felt to me like willpower was involved, or if I realized I was getting worried about physical causes, I stopped.
In casual conversations and in advertisements, I encountered a lot of talk about medical interventions, including replacement surgery. As a Christian Scientist, I felt strongly that I didn't have to let this stir up fear in my thought, or let it affect my active expression of good. Fear is just lack of confidence in the next moment, an unsureness about an outcome. So instead of getting trapped by fear, I began to pray and to study what Mary Baker Eddy referred to in Science and Health as the "chain of scientific being" (p.271), and references to the spiritual link man has to God. This "home fun" (not homework!) reminded me that in spiritual reality, I had no mortal history.
