Fatigue and pain disappear

In a healing experience last October, I was reminded that every Christian Science healing, whether it occurs instantaneously or takes longer and is more hard fought, involves a change in perspective—a transformation of thought from a material to a spiritual outlook. Sometimes it feels as if we are able to just simply flip a switch in thought with apparent ease, waking up immediately to spiritual reality, bursting from gloom into the divine light of health and happiness. But at other times it can feel as though we are ploughing the same field on and on all the way into midwinter without respite, wondering when we will be healed.

The healing experience I want to share is one that initially felt as though it were going to be of the second variety. I felt a surprising degree of extreme fatigue come over me—surprising because although I’d been working hard, it was work I love doing—compounded by a fierce pain and a general sense of being not at all well. 

Interestingly, this was the first weekend in two or three months in which I had no obligations. All I wanted to do (and did) was to flop down at home and read Christian Science literature—the weekly Bible Lesson found in the Christian Science Quarterly, the Christian Science periodicals, the Christian Science Hymnal, and favorite passages from the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
