Healing Testimony from “Third Church Member, Educator”:

I awoke on a Monday morning with aggressive symptoms of the flu, and the first thought that came to me was that I had a conference to attend on Thursday and a paper to give on Friday. I silently prayed to know that all was well, and that I would be able to do what I needed to do at the time I needed to do it. Later that day, as the flu symptoms did not abate, I decided to “ignore” the symptoms and practice reading my paper aloud. Sneezing and stopping to blow my nose interrupted my reading. I stopped, rested, took time to read from the Bible and Science and Health. I remained confident and unconcerned about the symptoms, the human mortal picture that was manifesting itself, and I was certain that I would be able to attend the conference and read my paper as planned.

The next morning, I felt better, but in place of the sneezing and runny nose, I had a bad headache. It continued to worsen during the day in spite of my prayerful work and study. I happened to be reading a biography by Mrs. Eddy, and as always, I found myself very inspired by it. But my headache continued to get worse, and finally, it was so bad that I could no longer read.

The pain at that point was so intense that I could hardly even think, and any movement made it worse. I lay down, closed my eyes and silently reached out to God in prayer. I recalled a testimony that I had heard in church; a heavy object had fallen on the testifier’s foot, and the big toe was possibly injured and maybe even broken. But she immediately declared her exemption from any such injury, and she based it on clear and strong and unequivocal statements affirming her birthright as a child of God, made in His image and eternally “upright, whole and free” from any kind of injury. Recalling the testimony encouraged me, but the pain was still very intense.

I began to recite the Scientific Statement of Being, beginning with “There is no Life, Truth, intelligence nor substance in Matter; All is infinite Mind and Its infinite manifestation.” I was on my second time through with no effect, when I suddenly remembered a passage from the biography. Some of Mrs. Eddy’s students asked her, “When will we be able to heal as you do,” meaning when would they be able to heal as effectively, consistently and quickly as she healed. The answer: “When you believe what you say.” In that instant, the question came to me, “Do you believe what you say?” The answer was an absolute “Yes!”

Within seconds, I felt the pain begin to lessen, and within less than half an hour, I could get up and eat something whereas before just looking at food nauseated me.

I slept peacefully that night, and when I awoke the next morning, which was Wednesday, I was completely free of symptoms. I was able to attend the conference on Thursday and give the paper as scheduled on Friday.

I am so grateful for all of the ways in which we can gain the inspiration necessary for growth in our understanding of God and healing as a result of that growth: the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the testimony services each Wednesday evening, all of the wonderful periodicals in both print and web formats, and the biographies with inspiring information about Mrs. Eddy’s life and work.

Sincerely,
“Third Church Member, Educator”
