Living in God’s world

Progress in seeing spiritually rather than accepting a material sense of being was my ticket to freedom from suffering.

When I was on a business trip several years ago, a painful condition in my side was again making me feel very uncomfortable. I had been struggling with this problem for a long time. Having faith in what Christian Science could do for me, I decided to again call a Christian Science practitioner for treatment through prayer. I expected to be healed, because I had experienced so much healing over the years. Yet this problem had not yet yielded. 

I reached the practitioner and complained about living with this discomfort as well as facing other challenges. These challenges included a stressful work environment in a new field of research, the obligations of a growing family of young children, responsibilities at church, and concerns about the world we live in. Her straightforward response to my complaints startled me: “So, do you want to keep living in that stressful world?” This question made me realize I didn’t have to live in the world I was describing.
