Immobility healed

What a joy and blessing it is that Christian Science gives us the ability to recognize and live the reality of Spirit, God, as Christ Jesus exemplified it! As Jesus told us, “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32 ). I’d like to share an insight I gained last year that brought healing.

After a tumble on a ski slope, I lacked mobility in one leg and arm. Because I live alone in a rural setting, instead of returning home, I went to a Christian Science nursing facility. The Christian Science nursing staff were so helpful in meeting my practical needs but were most valuable in supporting my spiritual progress. I pondered what true mobility, or movement, is, praying about this for society as a whole as well as for myself. The Christian Science practitioner whom I had called for prayerful help encouraged me to turn away from the belief that any form of matter is the source, impetus, or enabler of movement. The Bible states that “we live, and move, and have our being” in God (Acts 17:28 ).
