During my younger son’s visit home last Christmas, he needed an office chair to use in his room. We had one in the attic above our garage, but as my husband was handing it down to me from the top of the attic ladder, the heavy chair came crashing down on my face.
I had woken up in the early hours of the morning with a little sneeze. As I blew my nose, my thought started to wander toward a possible cause.
In 2003, I was traveling around Australia for a year, and had gone to Darwin, Northern Territory, when I became affected by severe food poisoning. I had only my backpack and some clothes.
Recently, while in the kitchen, I inadvertently poured boiling hot water from a teapot over my hand and wrist. The pain was intense.
Several years ago, I had a large wart on the top of my hand. It had been there a few months, and it was embarrassing to have people see it.
One morning, I awoke with a severe headache. It was so intense that I could not get out of bed.
Christian Science found me through a colleague when I was struggling with many challenges way back in 1993. My spiritual journey started with healings of asthma, relationship issues, gynecological troubles, teeth problems, and job concerns, to name a few.
A few years ago I began experiencing a lot of trouble walking and speaking normally, and there were other painful symptoms. I feared these problems might be connected with my having had polio as a child, since doctors had warned me of possible aftereffects later in life.
Jesus said, “With God all things are possible” ( Mark 10:27 ). And he healed a woman who had been bent over for 18 years and “could in no wise lift up herself” ( Luke 13:11 ).
I grew up in Nigeria, and from a child I felt a close relationship to God. I always wanted to know more about God and to please Him.
