My healing of asthma

Originally appeared online in the teen series Your Healings -  April 11, 2023

I suffered from asthma when I was a kid. My parents were always supporting me—praying, singing hymns, and knowing God’s care for me—but at that time there weren’t any Christian Science practitioners in the Philippines to call for Christian Science treatment. My family kept praying based on what we’d learned through studying Christian Science, and the asthma symptoms would go away.

But one time, my uncle, who is a doctor, became aware of my breathing issue and said I should go to a local clinic to receive medical treatment. I did. But while my symptoms were temporarily relieved, the doctors there said that there was no cure for the condition itself.

I’d been attending Christian Science Sunday School since I was little, and I’d learned that God’s love is always with me no matter where I am, because God, divine Love, is ever present. So it was natural for me to pray and think about God when I was afraid. This helped me feel calmer.
