Learning more about healing

One day I came home from school with a headache and symptoms of a cold. But I wasn’t worried, because I am a student in the Christian Science Sunday School. I knew I could pray and be healed. I have had many other healings. I started praying with an idea from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “There is no pain in Truth, and no truth in pain; ...” (p. 113 ). Truth is another name for God, so I knew God didn’t give me pain. After thinking about this for a little while, I went to sleep. 

When I woke up, I still wasn’t feeling well, so I called a Christian Science practitioner, and she agreed to pray for me. We talked about another idea from Mary Baker Eddy, this time from her Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, that has helped me many times: “If a cold could get into the body without the assent of mind, nature would take it out as gently, or let it remain as harmlessly, as it takes the frost out of the ground or puts it into the ice-cream to the satisfaction of all” (p. 240 ). From this passage, I understood that cold is acceptable for ice cream, but I didn’t have to accept it for myself. I was inspired by this idea and slept peacefully that night.
