Nothing is too hard for God

“Can God heal animals?”

I was taking a class on Christian Science, and that was one of the questions I asked my teacher. At home, we’d just had some kittens born to our mama cat. One kitten had deformed front feet. She couldn’t walk or climb. She could move only by pushing with her back feet, and my dad said she would never live a normal life. 

I didn’t want to believe that my kitten would never be able to run and play like other kittens, but I was still a little bit afraid. That’s why I asked my teacher during Christian Science class instruction if God could heal animals. He assured me that all life is in God, so it can only express good, because God is good. That meant that even a problem such as this could be healed, because healing is about understanding God and His total goodness better. My teacher encouraged me to let my prayer lead me to the right understanding of this kitten’s spiritual perfection.
