Jealousy resolved, toothache healed

Adapted from a testimony originally read during an online Wednesday testimony meeting of The Mother Church:

I’m very grateful for a healing I had in the fall of 2012 that showed me so clearly that good does overcome evil. Out of nowhere, a tooth started bothering me, and the pain quickly escalated from moderately annoying to almost debilitating. Eating was nearly impossible, as was sleeping.

I struggled for several days but was grateful for the prayers of a Christian Science practitioner, which did bring some relief. The problem persisted, though, and one day as I prayed, it occurred to me that what I really needed to do was get to the root of the issue. I wasn’t sure how to do this, but I decided I would simply think about who and what God is, and God would show me the rest. I’ve found this approach very effective in the past because it helps focus my thoughts on what’s true and good, instead of whatever evil seems to be looming large.
