Joint pain gone

Several years ago, I had pain in the joints of my legs, and it was very difficult walking up or down stairs, or even taking small steps to get on and off the curb. The pain was excruciating. A change of shoes did little to make the situation better. As I always do, I turned to God for healing and prayed with the truths I had learned in my study of Christian Science. Christian Science teaches that life is not in matter but in God, divine Mind. In the first chapter of Genesis in the Bible, it says that God’s man is created spiritually. It also says that God created everything and, having finished, saw that “it was very good” (verse 31). 

I prayed to know that in divine Mind’s creation there is no history of imperfection—of sin, disease, or death—since Mind did not create anything that is not good and perfect. There is no weakness, pain, or inflammation in divine Mind or Mind’s reflection, man—the spiritual identity of each of us. Our true being is free and painless. I continued praying and studying Christian Science to better understand that this is what God knows about me, and I persisted in denying the false claim of the physical senses that we are subject to pain and disability. 

Within a short time I was able to climb several flights of stairs several times a day, painlessly and with ease. I feel great gratitude for Christian Science, which reveals that divine Mind, the infinite intelligence that created man and the universe, maintains us in perfection.
