The twenty-third Psalm brings healing
One night, I was watching television when a commercial advertising flu relief pills came on. Not very long after that, I began to feel sick with some of the symptoms the commercial had described. I turned off the TV and went to bed, hoping that when I awoke, I would feel better. When I opened my eyes early the next morning, though, the headache I’d been feeling before going to bed was still there, along with an unpleasant feeling in my stomach.
In the Christian Science Sunday School, I’ve learned that I am spiritual—the pure expression of God, who is Truth and Love. So I knew this picture of sickness was not the real me, because the pure expression of Love couldn’t also include something bad. I also knew that my perfect spiritual identity couldn’t be affected by any negative suggestions, like those I’d heard in the commercial. I decided to read the Bible, along with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, in order to understand this more clearly.
