Quickly healed of stiffness

Over a decade ago, during a car trip lasting roughly five hours, I found myself unable to move when I stopped for a meal and fuel. It was difficult to turn my head and move my limbs. I was unable to get out of my vehicle.

As I was traveling alone and still had about two hours of driving before me, I was very concerned and afraid. Nothing like this had ever happened to me before. But I expressed, silently and humbly, deep gratitude for the spiritual understanding I had gained through my study and practice of Christian Science. I knew from personal experience that God was “a very present help in trouble” (Psalms 46:1), and that Christian Science is a practical help, not theory. My lifelong study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, had been steadily spiritualizing my thought and life, rescuing me from character faults, sickness, deafness in one ear, and so forth.
