Two powerful healings during college

This testimony was originally recorded as a Sentinel News of Healing podcast, which was published online on May 8, 2012.

In my senior year in high school I decided that I wanted to continue in Christian Science in college. So I joined the Christian Science College Organization at the college I was attending. When I became a senior, I was elected the Reader for the college “org,” which meant that I had to prepare readings from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, for our weekly meeting.

One of the requirements for graduation was that each student had to have a chest X-ray, and I had this done. The morning I was preparing my readings, I got a postcard stating that the X-ray had shown chest abnormalities, and that I needed to have a more extensive examination. I was fearful about this, and I thought, “Well, here’s a real opportunity to apply Christian Science.”

I decided to prepare my readings on the topic “a firm foundation,” because I thought this whole thing about a chest abnormality was trying to say that I didn’t have a sound foundation in my chest. Among the selections I made was from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount where he says that the wise man built his house upon a rock, and when the winds blew and the rain fell, the house stayed firm (see Matthew 7:24, 25).
