Neck pain disappears

Three years ago, in the spring, I started to feel pain in the middle of the back of my neck. I felt this sensation two or three times a month over the next few months. The pain would last a few hours and then go away. Because it seemed temporary, I just put up with it.

However, at one point when this pain returned near the end of that summer, I said to myself, “I have to do something about this!”

In that instant, I reached out to God. An angel message immediately came to me: “There is no pain in Truth, and no truth in pain.” I recognized these words from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 113). Though this statement brought some comfort, the pain remained. So, I asked God, “How do I know that statement is true?” Again, God’s message to me came at once: “If it were not so, I would have told you” (John 14:2).
