Pain in arm healed

Many years ago, my husband and I left very financially rewarding medical careers to follow our newfound hearts’ desire, Christian Science. We moved to Boston, where I began working at The Mother Church.

After a few months, things were looking bleak—literally. One very cold and windy day, I was walking to work on an icy sidewalk. The sun had not come up yet, and it was still dark. I was hurting in several ways: One of my arms had been very painful for a couple of days, and I felt out of my comfort zone. I wasn’t a “city girl,” having been raised in a small town, and our housing situation was not to the standard I was used to because of the expenses of living in the city and the mortgage on our house, which had not yet sold.

In my thoughts, I was trying to identify what was causing the painful condition of my arm. How had I injured it? Had I fallen and harmed myself in some way? Suddenly, I caught myself. I realized I was looking for cause in the wrong place. In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy writes, “Cause does not exist in matter, in mortal mind, or in physical forms” (p. 262). A bit later, we read, “All substance, intelligence, wisdom, being, immortality, cause, and effect belong to God” (p. 275).
