Signs of hemorrhoids disappear

One afternoon in October 2009, when some friends came to visit me, the subject of hemorrhoids and their causes came up. I had some symptoms of this condition at the time, and I started to think a lot about those symptoms. Rather than turning to God in prayer, I focused on concerns about myself. Two days later, I started to feel pain, and I worried that the symptoms would become worse.

Christian Science teaches us that the cause of disease is not physical, but mental. I realized that I needed to defend myself mentally against thoughts of this condition. I considered passages from the Bible, such as these verses from Psalms: “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. … There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling” (91:1, 10). I realized that I needed to abide in the living God for health, harmony, happiness, and peace, because in God’s government, there is no disease, inharmony, or misfortune. I recognized that only God, Life, keeps me perfect and healthy.
