Lives Lived: Edwin

Meet Edwin. His physician prescribed a way to treat, but not cure, a muscular-skeletal condition he’d been diagnosed with. He met a Christian Science practitioner, and began to consider Christian Science as a viable way to treat the condition. This approach healed him.

    Wow, thatnks for that. It is really nice to hear someone share their healing on this blog through a video. So many times people think there is only one way to deal with a physical problem and that is the medical way and yet there are multiple ways to handle physical problems one sure way for me is through prayer as taught in Christian Science. My family and I have had many healings through the study and practice of Christian Science. It isn’t so much that we don’t believe in doctors it’s that we do believe in God and His ability to heal, restore and redeem. So for those reasons alone i always to to God first and foremost.

    One of my girl sciout once asked me why I didn’t ever go to a doctor and I told her it was because I go to God. She asked me what if God didn’t heal me, would I then go to a doctor. I said, “Well God has always healed me so I don’t know how to answer that question.” Either God is all that the Bible says He is or He isn’t. I believe that God is all that the Bible tells us He is. and therefore turn to Him for everything. And I’ve never been disappointed.

    Thank you, Don, Edwin, (and the Christian Science Practitioner) for sharing that beautiful Christian Science healing and the joy of knowing we can trust our Creator for not only our health, but also for every need. I love the statements on the walls of so many Christian Science Churches: “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make your free.” – Christ Jesus (John 8:32); and “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.” – Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of the Science of the Christ, Christian Science. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, page 494, lines 10 and 11)

    God was loving Edwin all along, and so was his dad. So at the right time and in the right way for Edwin, he was free.
    Thank you for this inspiring account of healing in Christian Science.

    Thank you so much for this proof that healing is a “revealing” of what already is.
