One summer, two healings

Originally appeared online in the teen series Your Healings -  July 4, 2023

I’m grateful for the healings I had during two experiences in one summer. For the first, I traveled to Mexico with a group of Christian Scientists. And later, I attended a camp for Christian Scientists in Missouri. 

In Mexico, I loved swimming with cool fish, being with my friends, and going to an adventure park that had a high ropes course. The course looked like a lot of fun, so I really wanted to do it. But I was a bit intimidated because I had a fear of heights. 

To overcome this fear, I thought about my favorite Bible verse: “The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee” (Jeremiah 31:3). It reminded me how much God loves me and that divine Love is all around me. Feeling Love’s presence defused the fear and gave me confidence to try the ropes course. And not only was I able to complete the course but I was able to help one of my peers complete it as well. My fear of heights diminished significantly because of this experience.
