Arm pain gone

One day several years ago, I found I couldn’t lift my right arm to brush my teeth, arrange my hair, or do any other daily task without a lot of pain. This seemed to come out of the blue, with no apparent cause. At that time, I’d been thinking and praying about individuals I knew who had experienced heart attacks or strokes—conditions which frequently seem to come out of nowhere. But I hadn’t been able to get much clarity.

I called a Christian Science practitioner to pray with me. I don’t recall exactly what she said, but shortly after our conversation, the words from a song in the movie The Sound of Music began running through my thought. The song was “Something Good,” and the specific words that came to me were: “Nothing comes from nothing, / Nothing ever could.” This arrested my attention.
