High Blood Pressure Healed
From E. S. in Georgia
Our family has had a wonderful demonstration of God’s care, which I am profoundly grateful for. My son, who is a senior in high school, plays soccer for his high school team. In January he was required to have a physical exam. Everything was normal except his blood pressure, which kept reading high, and the doctor would not sign off. He went to three different doctors, and each time the result was the same. The third doctor finally said he should see a cardiologist, since it seemed he might have a heart murmur, which could cause this. My husband made an appointment, and my son went through a number of tests. He was told this murmur was fairly normal and the high blood pressure was probably due to stress or hypertension. The cardiologist okayed him to play for the season.
However, my son has been concerned about this, and has taken his blood pressure on his own several times. The readings have always been high. He is also going through a lengthy and rigorous process for admission into a military academy, and part of the requirement is to have a medical exam.
The past few months have been a bit of a roller coaster, and I have had to wrestle with getting myself out of the way of his decisions. When speaking with a practitioner in this church, she told me he feels this pressure, and it is animal magnetism trying to get me to lose my peace. So, I have been working instead to see him as God’s child, and that God knows what he needs.
Last night when praying, I became very calm and felt God’s love and care for him, and knew that God governs every function of his body. This morning as I was reading Science and Health, this stood out to me: “spiritual ideas, like numbers and notes, start from Principle, and admit no materialistic beliefs. Spiritual ideas lead up to their divine origin, God, and to the spiritual sense of being.” This gave me a great sense of peace.
Since this day was the physical exam for admittance to college, I called my practitioner for additional help. A short while later, I got a text from my husband saying that our son’s blood pressure was completely normal. After months of it not being normal, this was wonderful news and a clear demonstration that God was at work, showing what was always true. I am so grateful for God’s care and for practitioner support.
