I have wonderful, active young children who love to play and to be frequently held. Over a year ago I began to feel discomfort in the arm I predominantly use to hold them. This increased week by week until I could hardly pick up or carry anything with that arm. This was particularly discouraging for me because I’ve been an athlete my whole life (and was also a military officer for many years) and had never dealt with any challenges like this, despite all the strenuous activity.
I had been consistently giving myself Christian Science treatment but was finding little relief. Then one Sunday morning at church, while serving as First Reader, I was listening to the soloist for the church service as she sang a solo that quoted a familiar Bible verse from the book of Jeremiah: “Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might” (9:23 ).
