Turning points in spiritual growth

Finding freedom from suffering

I was raised in Christian Science, and whenever a health problem came up, my mother prayed for me, and I was soon healed. As I approached adulthood, though, I didn’t turn to God for healing as readily as my mom did. I took pills that I thought would be a quick solution, allowing me to get on with my day undistracted by pain. 

However, instead of the medication reducing my discomfort, I began to experience pain in new and more aggressive forms. Eventually, I stopped pretending that I knew the truth that Jesus declared would make us free. I found myself completely engulfed in a sense of life as material, a willing slave to the body.
