A spiritual sense of home brings healing

Reading a testimony in a recent Sentinel about a family’s protection while living far from their home country made me realize that it’s time I give similar thanks.

When our daughter was three, my husband accepted a position in a small Himalayan country, where we made our home for more than two years. A little incident before the move alerted me to trust God’s law of good, not human planning, to meet our needs in this new situation. I had asked someone to take photos of the home we would be occupying, but when the photos arrived, there was not one picture of the house, inside or out, just photos of the countryside and distant mountains. “What’s wrong with the house?” I wondered briefly, and then laughed. “I get it,” I thought. “I need to trust.”

On our arrival in the country, our family was briefed on the many sanitary precautions believed essential to staying healthy where we were locating. Although we cooperated, when we could, with the advice to filter and boil water, my study of Christian Science had assured me that health in its truest sense is a spiritual quality, not a precarious material condition. It is inherent in our real being, created by God in His image, and it is sustained by our unbreakable relation to our creator. Christ Jesus proved this truth through his healing works.
