Spiritual growth clears up annoyance and pride

After a weekend of yardwork, a rash developed on my legs, arms, and hands. This experience prompted prayer and some shifts in my character.

The morning after this yardwork, I was praying and recalled an article I’d read titled, “Getting the full benefit from Christian Science treatment” (Corrine Jane Teeter, Sentinel, July 26, 1975). The author wrote that often, a person who wants relief from some physical or emotional challenge calls a Christian Science practitioner asking for prayerful treatment just for a particular symptom. But, she went on, there’s so much more that we can (and should) expect to get out of a healing. We can expect helpful spiritual truths to not only heal us but make us thoroughly new as we pray for guidance from God. 

It was with this in mind that I contacted a Christian Science practitioner, not only seeking healing from the physical challenge, but also open to uncovering any error, or mistaken beliefs, about myself or the situation in general.
