Abdominal pain ends

I had a healing that was very significant to me. Early one morning I started to have abdominal pain. Very quickly it became so intense that I could not move from my bed.

I was praying diligently but having a hard time thinking clearly through the pain. I stuck to very simple thoughts such as, “No! I will not give in,” because I knew that as a spiritual child of God, I was free from illness—perfect. I knew that I was created in God’s image, as we read in the Bible (see Genesis 1:27). God, good, did not create pain, so there was no true substance to it. I refuted the lie that I was a mortal who could suffer. I also thought about how Christ Jesus never gave in to a belief in sickness by worrying whether a disease was too serious to be healed. He demonstrated that healing is natural.

As I prayed, I felt a clear sense that wholeness and harmony are natural, and that anything suggesting otherwise is a lie. This absolute truth assured me that there was nothing to fear. Illness was no part of my true, spiritual identity.
