Persistent hip pain healed

About four years ago I began to have some pain in one of my hips while moving or standing still. I led a very active life—worked a full-time job, lived in the city, and walked a lot. I was also very active in my branch Church of Christ, Scientist, which I dearly love.

However, even though this problem went on for several months, I did not give myself specific Christian Science treatment because I was focused on other problems at work, which seemed overwhelming. I felt that my boss didn’t appreciate me, even though I worked very hard, and there was friction with colleagues in our department. I was praying about these problems but didn’t feel I was making much progress. I felt I was just keeping my head above water.

One day as I was running an errand on foot during my lunch break, I was standing at a stoplight waiting for the light to change, struggling with the pain in my hip. Suddenly the words “fitly framed” came into my thought, almost as if they had been spoken aloud. I wasn’t familiar with this phrase, but I had a sense that it was from the Bible.
