Leg Pain Healed
D. W., Virginia
I’m very grateful for the very practical applications of Christian Science. Late Saturday evening, all of a sudden I had a lot of pain in one of my legs, so much so that it was difficult to walk. Because I couldn’t focus, I turned to Plainfield Church’s website and listened to the audio recording of Unity of Good, which is from Prose Works by Mary Baker Eddy. It was very comforting to be able to listen to the truths being spoken.
The next afternoon, even though I was not in as much pain, I was still limping and not able to move around freely, so I called a practitioner from this church. I was told not to let myself be put under pressure, that I was the “humble servant of the restful Mind.” (S&H) I was also told to work with the statements on pages 390 393 in Science and Health — they are command statements, which really get you into action and not let you just sit and wait for something to get better! It really turns you completely to God where you can kick error out as the liar that it is.
The next morning when I was working in the kitchen, I thought I must call the practitioner. As I reached my upstairs study, I realized that I had run up the stairs with no problem at all, and I have continued to be perfectly free.
I also turned to an article in the November Cornerstone, “My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord,” which directs thought and action to consider the goodness of God and praise Him continually, with the result being “freedom and dominion over all things human.” (Mrs. Eddy) When we are working in this direction, we can overcome “all things human” and be a shining light for others as well.
I am very grateful for all the sources in this church that make us better and help us to help others as well.
