Food poisoning healed

Many years ago, when my husband and I had a dinner party for another couple, not long into the dinner I felt extremely ill and had to excuse myself. I could only imagine that it was food poisoning because it seemed to come out of nowhere. The pain was so excruciating that an overwhelming fear set in. I felt the need to be alone, as time seemed to be of the essence. So I went to my room and closed the door.

As I sat there alone, the thought came: “You’d better call an ambulance because you don’t have long to live.” I had never had such a thought before, and that frightened me all the more. And then another suggestion invaded my thinking: “You’re going to die!” In desperation, I reached for the phone at my bedside to dial 911. But as I did, I saw my class notes on the shelf under the telephone.

To explain: When Christian Scientists want to learn more about healing, they can attend a course given by a Christian Science teacher to learn about the metaphysical healing method Christ Jesus used. He healed through prayer, an unwavering faith in Almighty God, and a spiritual understanding that the identity of every individual is actually God’s image and likeness. Mary Baker Eddy discovered the Science of what Jesus taught, which led to her writing Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. This textbook inspired by the Bible serves as the foundation for Christian Science class instruction. At the end of this course, which is usually 12 days, students often have notes to which they can later refer for guidance. These are the notes I saw at my bedside.
