The other day, I was standing outside the front door of my home and the front door closed with a slam on my three fingers. I quickly opened the door and my fingers did not hurt until I looked at them and thought about it. They looked horrible and many thoughts went through my head.
I immediately prayed, saying God can never be hurt, and I am a perfect reflection of God. Therefore, there was nothing wrong. That night, they didn't hurt, but I couldn't move them. Then the next morning, I woke up and they were not stiff and I could move them freely with no problem. That's my healing!
As a child, I lived in a foster home. Studying the Ten Commandments in the Bible caused me much unhappiness about not being able to honor my father and mother. Many years later, when I began to study Christian Science, I learned that "God is my Father and my Mother." It was such a blessing to learn that God loves me as His child, and his idea. I couldn't wait to learn more about God from the Bible with the help of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Studying God's word with this key brings me new joy each day.
When I learned by studying the Bible and Science and Health, that I am "the beloved child of God in whom He is well pleased," everything in my life changed. I had worn a back brace for seven years and three doctors told me eventually I would have rhumatoid arthritis. A friend had a Christian Science practitioner call me. The practitioner said, "God loves you." A wonderful feeling of peace came over me. I felt lifted up. I got out of bed and didn't put my brace on. I never needed it again. I am so grateful for the years since then and for all the locked secrets of the Bible which I now understand. Christian Science has given me the key.
