Freed from grief

I am so grateful for the practicality and availability of Christian Science, always ready to meet all our needs. I’d like to share a complete healing of grief I experienced a few years ago.

When my mother passed on, right away I started praying to overcome the overwhelming grief. I knew that my mom was still growing spiritually, and that holding on to a perception of her as a mortal being who had passed on was counterproductive and not the truth about her as God’s eternal idea. I worked to understand that Life is Spirit, not in or of matter, as revealed in the Bible and explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

During this time, I was forced to grow in several ways. For instance, previously when problems had come up, I was used to calling my mom for support. Now I had to become more devoted to praying for myself. I also had to learn how to manage new responsibilities in handling family affairs. These were points of progress, but I still struggled every day.
