Earlier this year, I was working through a claim that seemed to paralyze my thought in fear. A cough grew worse over the course of several weeks and turned into a severe form of chest congestion. Breathing became laborious and I was sunk into a depression of feeling that my grasp of Christian Science was inadequate to meet this challenge.
In my study, I turned to the 1943 testimonies and found confidence that Truth was indeed adequate to defeat error. They inspired me to turn wholeheartedly to the Pastor for renewal and strength. I worked with a practitioner who pointed out that prayer and Christian Science is not a human strategy to overcome sickness, but Truth is the fact of being, acknowledging the power of Spirit. All I needed to do was strive to bring my thoughts into line with this great spiritual fact, with Soul’s provisions, and recognize my genuine relationship with God, Love, and Spirit. In persisting with these facts of being, my fear and the symptoms disappeared. I’m so grateful for this demonstration and the proof that Christian Science unveils man’s true spiritual substance.
