A healing from a psalm

Here’s an example of a time a favorite passage from the book of Psalms was instrumental in effecting a healing.

I had been serving as a Reader in my branch Church of Christ, Scientist, when I began experiencing flulike symptoms. That week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson in the Christian Science Quarterly had as one of its citations this verse from Psalm 107: “He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still” (verse 29).

Now, this could be read as God calming down the rough seas, but what came to me as I prayed was the Christly thought that it was a total repudiation of any kind of storm—a denial that the storm ever existed at all. It was a rejection of any possibility of disturbance or disruption of my perfect self as God’s spiritual, loved creation.
