Nail fungus vanishes

In 2004, I was suffering from a fungus on two of my fingernails that caused painful inflammation. Over a period of six months, I worked with some pertinent definitions in the Glossary of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. On page 586, Mary Baker Eddy defines fire as “fear; remorse; lust; hatred; destruction; affliction purifying and elevating man,” and she defines flesh as “an error of physical belief; a supposition that life, substance, and intelligence are in matter; an illusion; a belief that matter has sensation.” 

These definitions helped me get a clearer sense of the nail condition as mental, not physical. I prayed earnestly to see that, as God’s perfect, spiritual idea, I couldn’t be distracted by pain or destroyed by matter. I affirmed that the only thing that can be destroyed is the belief of self-destructing matter, and this belief has nothing to do with my true being as God’s child. Working this way, I often would get relief from the pain and a sense of peace, but I didn’t achieve a complete healing.
