Shoulder pain and immobility healed

I have had so many healings in Christian Science, I feel it is time for me to share—to testify to the healing and saving power of God. One of my favorite statements of fact in the Bible reads, “In him we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28). This spiritual truth became my starting point for a complete healing of shoulder pain and a hindered ability to move my arm.

One day about six years ago, when I was substitute teaching, a colleague and I were talking in a high school cafeteria. He was telling me that he would soon be having surgery on his shoulder, as he was experiencing pain and lack of motion. I heard myself saying that I had been experiencing the same thing. I even shared examples he could relate to, such as not being able to lift my arm above my head or close a car door properly. No sooner had the words come out of my mouth than I realized that applying the divine metaphysics of Christian Science would heal me. 

In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy assures us, “Clad in the panoply of Love, human hatred cannot reach you” (p. 571). I view “human hatred” as any man-made belief that opposes God’s, Love’s, good and pure creation and is thought to govern the body. I reasoned that because I am a purely spiritual being—as the image and likeness of divine Spirit must be—created and maintained by God, I could not be fooled into believing in or experiencing any limiting or painful material condition, which would be so unlike God. I realized that having the freedom of living and moving and having my being in Him means I must always be intact. I knew this was true for everyone, including my coworker. We are never outside of God’s embrace. I concluded that this divine, metaphysical truth is scientific, and therefore could be proven.
