Grateful for spiritual flexibility and freedom

Over the course of a few years, I felt pain in one or two fingers when bending them or putting pressure on them. The fingers didn’t function properly, and this affected the mobility of my hands. I found myself wondering if this might be the beginning of arthritis. 

From past experience with physical problems, I knew that this could be healed through prayer. Christian Science has taught me that my true selfhood is an expression of God, good, and His spiritual expression cannot experience anything that isn’t good. Therefore, since God didn’t create pain or know anything about it, I could not experience it. Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures explains, “The fact that pain cannot exist where there is no mortal mind to feel it is a proof that this so-called mind makes its own pain—that is, its own belief in pain” (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 153).
