Growth on head healed

One morning more than ten years ago, while my wife was cutting my hair, she touched something on the side of my head and said, “That needs to be removed.” I knew she must be referring to some kind of growth, and we both knew that I would take metaphysical action to address the situation in prayer. Though we did not discuss it, I started immediately to mentally deny the false evidence of a growth.

I prayed regularly and faithfully for several months, refusing to accept what I knew to be a lie, but with no change in the condition. Finally I decided to call a Christian Science practitioner. I opened a copy of The Christian Science Journal and, after reaching out in prayer, I selected a name and called. I feel now that I was divinely directed to that name.

When the practitioner and I first started talking, I told him I was frustrated about the months of no apparent progress. I began listing the things I had been doing: “I read the Christian Science Bible Lesson daily; I go to church; I don’t take medicine ...” He responded, “That’s good; that should continue.” Then, at the height of frustration, I said, “But this thing hasn’t yielded!” Immediately he countered: “No! It can’t yield. It’s non-intelligent, inert. You have to yield!”
