Arm restored to full mobility

At one time, I was having difficulty with one of my arms in the form of pain and restricted mobility. The pain increased to the point that I could not lift the arm above shoulder level. I had been relying on Christian Science for healing for a number of years, so it was natural for me to turn to it in this case. 

During this time, our church had been discussing a possible move to a more public location, but there were mixed views about such a move. I was uneasy with what felt like a lack of progress. 

As I prayed about both the arm difficulty and the church situation, and as I studied the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s writings, I was learning more about God’s substance as infinite Spirit and how Spirit constitutes the law and structure of all God’s creation. A passage from the Bible helped me understand this spiritual structure; it also helped me see how this understanding is essential to the proper government of both a church and the body. In speaking about the Church as the body of Christ, the writer of Ephesians tells us that Christ “makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love” (4:16, New Living Translation).
