Trusting our spiritual instrument panel

When praying for healing in Christian Science, I often reach a point where the physical senses argue that this healing is just not going to happen. Mentally, I feel as though I must step off a cliff into a metaphysical void. Yet contrary to what those physical senses tell me, making that step, yielding to the Science of the Christ, Truth, is what has brought healing. 

Sometimes this moment comes just before the healing, and often well before the physical evidence changes. It’s a bit like the time when I was learning to fly private planes before entering Navy flight school, and I was introduced to instrument flying. This required relying on instruments instead of visual reference points such as the horizon. Later in Navy flight school we had to qualify in instrument flying.
