After traveling a day and a half to take Primary class instruction in Christian Science, I arrived feeling exhausted and aching. I had gone many kilometers through different climatic regions, and the weather in this location was cold compared to where I came from.
I would like to express my deep gratitude for Christian Science and the dedicated Christian Science practitioners who are ever ready to love and give support when called upon. It was three days before Christmas, and my days were full with holiday preparations and attending various activities with family and friends.
I was on a back road in northern Florida in my small motor home. I had stopped on a two-lane road to wait for traffic to clear so I could make a turn.
It’s with deep gratitude that I would like to share an experience I had recently. My family and I had gone out to have dinner one afternoon.
Last summer I took my kids to the local swimming pool, and we were having a fun time. But at one point I saw a wasp that had fallen into the pool and was struggling, so I picked it up in my hand to rescue it from drowning.
In 2010 I came to know about Christian Science from a colleague at my workplace, and I was surprised to learn that prayer can heal bad situations. I started attending services and testimony meetings at a Christian Science Society in my city and started practicing in my life what I was learning about divine law.
Six years ago, I had a healing that proved to me that I can never be outside God’s care and immediate help. After work one day, I rushed to catch the subway home.
Over the Christmas holidays, I did quite a bit of traveling in order to stay with a dear friend, who was happy to have some company. The week was a wonderful, healing time, filled with love and laughter.
My gratitude for the efficacy of the healing power of Christian Science goes beyond words. I was fully and completely healed of a long-standing depression through the power of prayer and the spiritual truths learned in Christian Science.
When I attended elementary school, I was a shy, quiet child and didn’t seem to be very bright. In fact, I struggled in all subject areas, especially reading.
