Association inspiration brings quick healing

I recall a time when I experienced flulike symptoms, and I called a Christian Science practitioner for Christian Science treatment. As she was praying for me, I tried to better understand God as good and to feel His presence with me, but I found my thought kept focusing on just wanting the symptoms to go away.

Later that day, I remembered something this practitioner had once said to me (during a conversation we’d had years before) about how sometimes we can become so absorbed with thinking about what is going on with the body, when what we really need is to stop focusing on the body and turn our thought to what God is doing. This is what leads to healing.

I really wanted to put that into practice. I began reading some notes I had taken during one of my Christian Science students’ association meetings (an annual meeting of students who took Christian Science Primary class instruction with the same teacher). My prayerful reading centered on Life, which is another name for God. That association meeting had really elucidated for me that Life, God, is truly All; Life is eternal; our life is in God, Spirit, and not in matter; our spiritual identity and individuality are forever one with divine Life. As the Bible says, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28).
