Freedom from severe illness

About a year ago, I had been working on my computer late into the evening when I suddenly felt symptoms of dizziness and nausea. My daughter-in-law and I were working in separate parts of the house. Both of our husbands were out of town, so it was just the two of us. I tried to make my way to the bathroom but collapsed on the floor of my bedroom on the way. I realized I needed immediate help from my daughter-in-law, who is a Christian Science practitioner, and I crawled to the phone next to the bed and called her. 

She soon found me in the darkened room and immediately began to pray. At once I felt her spiritual strength and clarity, and I knew that God was all around me. I was not able to get up off the floor, and my daughter-in-law couldn’t lift me, so I crawled to the bathroom. The symptoms were severe, and I faded in and out of consciousness. At one point I heard her say, “I am not impressed!” I almost felt that I was looking down on the scene apart from my body, and I remember smiling to myself, knowing that this statement was my daughter-in-law’s refusal to accept the picture of my body going through symptoms of illness. She was rejecting the attack as being anything that God had made. 

The truth is that God is completely good and never created disease. Mary Baker Eddy writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “It is not in accordance with the goodness of God’s character that He should make man sick, then leave man to heal himself; it is absurd to suppose that matter can both cause and cure disease, or that Spirit, God, produces disease and leaves the remedy to matter” (p. 208). The prayerful declaration of the truth of God’s good creation, and my perfection in that creation as His beloved daughter, helped me feel calm mentally even while the symptoms continued.
