It was the toughest hill in the whole cross-country ski race: the Powerline Hill. My two friends and I squared our shoulders, took a deep breath, and started up the infamous slope. Spectators lined the path to cheer on the 10,000 skiers who had signed up to do the race. Drummers at the top of the hill pounded out rhythms to match our strides as we all shouted out encouragement to each other. The feeling when we made it to the top—amazing! I love this stuff. This is the kind of adventure that demands all your heart and soul.
It also reminds me how to pursue healing in Christian Science. When I am seeking healing, I gather inspiration and take time to commune with God. If needed, I call on others to help: a Christian Science practitioner, a Christian Science nurse, or other experienced Christian Scientists. Closing the door on all self-doubt and speculations, I become open to learning more about God’s loving presence. His angel messages—inspiration and healing ideas—encourage and enlighten me. Thought shifts, and the human condition changes as a result of my elevated prayer. Healing happens.
It wasn’t always this way.
