One morning at work last February, I needed to make a phone call. I placed the receiver against my right ear because I hadn’t been able to hear out of my left ear for some time. But a small inner voice directed me to use the phone normally and place the receiver against my other ear. I did so and could hear the dial tone loud and clear. I was amazed and deeply thankful for God’s healing power.
In my preparations to move from Florida to Ohio in November 2010, I had been polishing some silver late one night. Somehow the toxic cleaning solution I was using splashed upward from the sink into my left ear, and I could feel a considerable quantity trickling down inside the ear canal. I had read the warning label carefully before opening the bottle, so I was alarmed, wondering what the impact would be.
Because I was scheduled to move within a few days, there was no time to set aside for quiet prayer and study beyond my usual morning study of the Christian Science weekly Bible Lesson. Any time the incident came to mind, I tried to pray about it as I had learned in Christian Science. But after reaching my destination a few days later, I was awakened out of a sound sleep by pain in my ear. For several minutes I calmly and persistently denied the false belief that accidents or poisoning could be real, since they weren’t from God, Love. I felt a sense of pressure being relieved in my ear and the pain left.
