Severe headache healed

One morning, I awoke with a severe headache. It was so intense that I could not get out of bed. My favorite thing to do when struggling with a problem is to read the Bible, but I couldn’t even do that at this point. Instead, I listened to several Sentinel Watch podcasts on my phone and then quietly listened for a thought-changing angel message—inspiration—from God.

Immediately, this phrase often used by athletes around the world came to mind: “All or nothing.” God inspired my prayers even further with this sweet message: “If God is All, then every single thought that you have must be good. If God is Love, then all of your thoughts must be loving. If God is infinite, then you cannot have any thoughts of error, not even one.” 

I recognized that this was referring not to me as a mortal, but to my real, spiritual nature as the expression of God, infinite Mind. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, explains how we can take an all-or-nothing approach to divine Spirit (All) and matter (nothing), and to good (All) and evil (nothing). Throughout her writings, using Scripture and divine inspiration as her only guides, she shows us that we have the natural ability to understand that God is All. She encourages each one of us to take a firm stand that Spirit is All, and that matter and material sense are nothing—they have no place in the true, spiritual universe.
