No more pain or injury

Originally written in German, this testimony first appeared in the October 2013 German, French, Portuguese, and Spanish editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

Through my study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, I have learned that, as a child of God, I can never be separated from divine Love, God. To understand and experience this makes me deeply grateful.

One experience especially stands out for me. On a sunny day, our son’s field hockey team played a game against the parents. My husband and I did not have any previous experience playing, but the fast game with the wooden ball and the hockey stick on the grass was a lot of fun.

Suddenly the ball hit me full force at my ankle. In great pain, I limped to the edge of the field. All joy in the game seemed to have suddenly vanished. At first, it was hard to think a clear thought. However, I vehemently refused to accept a feeling of disappointment and helplessness and mentally rejected the claim of an injury, as I had learned to do in Christian Science. But in the evening, after arriving home, I was not able to put weight on my foot anymore and the pain became unbearable.
