Skin condition gone

One of my earliest Christian Science healings was of a skin condition that was all over my body. I don’t know what it would be called, but it was very obvious, and people were noticing it and expressing concern for me. Though I was embarrassed about the condition, I wasn’t afraid of it. In fact, I was really interested to see how it would be healed by Christian Science. I dug into prayer and study of the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, looking at first for that one idea that would sort of “zap” the problem. It was a really purifying time, during which fears about so many things in my life were exposed and dissolved. 

I spent long periods in deep study, just being alone with God and filled with inspiration. Gradually, my thoughts stopped orbiting around the physical problem and how to heal it. Instead, my whole consciousness was being drawn toward God and away from self-rumination. Many mornings, I would wake up feeling enveloped in the presence of divine Love, feeling the “peace of God, which passeth all understanding” (Philippians 4:7). In retrospect, I see that this divine presence was illustrating Mary Baker Eddy’s statement that “… the divine Mind makes perfect, acts upon the so-called human mind through truth, leads the human mind to relinquish all error, to find the divine Mind to be the only Mind, and the healer of sin, disease, death” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 251).
