About 2 weeks ago my stomach started to hurt. It was a very intense feeling and didn’t allow me to do anything. That weekend that it happened was super important to me because finals was that week. The whole entire Sunday I didn’t study anything because I could barely move without my stomach hurting.
My mom convinced me to call a practitioner and get help. So I called a practitioner that is very close to me and she helped me understand what might be making me feel this way. I told her everything that was happening to me and one of them was that if I didn’t pass my Language Arts final I would go to summer school or get HELD BACK!!!
She helped me know that I was in God’s hands and that God didn’t make mistakes and bad grades. After that, I told myself not to worry and to just do your best. My stomach stopped hurting me. That week not only did I pass my Language Arts class, I got amazing grades on all my other finals.
Thank you so much for reading this and helping me express my gratitude for Christian Science.
Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not:
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing:
Isaiah 35: 3, 4 (to:), 5, 6 (to:)
Consciousness constructs a better body when faith in matter has been conquered.
Correct material belief by spiritual understanding, and Spirit will form you anew.
Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 425, lines 23-26
These quotations come from the current Bible Lesson on “Substance.” This week’s Sunday services at the First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston and branch churches worldwide will focus on this Lesson.
One aspect of true substance discussed in the Lesson is health and wholeness. The quotation from Science & Health provides insight into the Bible passage and elucidates why the healings related in the Bible were possible at that time and remain possible today.

The to-do list was cleared off, and I was ready to go. The next morning, my husband and I were leaving to drive from Massachusetts to Virginia to spend Christmas with my family. I couldn’t have been more excited. It had been a long semester; I had been working hard; and I was ready for a Christmas vacation filled with a whole lot of family and a whole lot of laughter. The only problem? Those flu symptoms that I had been half-heartedly praying about weren’t really getting any better. In fact, as I got ready for bed, I felt downright lousy….
Would we have to delay our trip? Would I feel miserable for Christmas? If Mary could make a pilgrimage to Bethlehem, nine months pregnant, on a camel, couldn’t I make an 8-hour trip to Virginia, very much notpregnant, in a Honda Civic? Click to read the entire article.

One regular Friday, I went to school as usual. I went to my science class, and then my math class. I was in the middle of taking a math test, when the intercom went on, I heard the principal say “We are going on lockdown, this is not a drill.” Lockdown is when the school shuts down and no one gets out or in because a threatening person is in the school. There is a high school right next to us, so the high school went in lockdown too.
When I first heard this, I was confused and shocked. I had no idea what was going on. The teacher told us to get into a spot where we couldn’t be seen, and she turned off the classroom lights, shut and locked the door, and covered and closed all the windows, and she told us to stay quiet and that we could whisper. We all gathered to the corner of the classroom and sat there for a while. I was terrified, because I had no idea who was in the school, and what that person had or wanted to do. I started shaking because I was so scared. Thoughts that I was going to die kept running through my head. And then I thought, “Hey stop, God is with me.”
Many kids in my class had their phones with them, and were texting their parents and friends that were in other classrooms. I learned that there was a man with a handgun and a box. I felt panic run through me. I reminded myself what I had thought earlier, that God is with me, and he never left, and he never will. I also thought to myself, that we are all in God’s kingdom, and since we are in God’s kingdom, we are always safe. I also thought that the man who had the weapon cannot harm us since he is perfect too. All of a sudden, my nervousness stopped. And I calmed down instantly. I was actually surprised of how calm I was. I then knew that all of us would get out of the school unharmed, and untouched. I got a book and read, and did my homework, and the kids in my class listened to music and just relaxed. We were all calm. The lockdown lasted 4 hours. Then we were able to call our parents and leave. Everyone left without getting hurt. And I am very grateful for that. And I am grateful for the understanding that Christian Science has given me.

Did you catch the brief but remarkable story about researchers who have concluded (once again) that more and more Americans are praying about their health? As striking as that is, it’s not the big surprise in the latest study.
Here’s what is: as of 2007 the percent of adults who are praying about their health is now at 49 percent — no kidding, about half of the adult population — up from 43 percent in 2002 and 14 percent in 1999. That’s a lot of prayers.
But what about the results? With all that lofty thinking going on are people actually satisfied with the outcome? Apparently so. The researchers commented in their report that a huge majority reported positive experiences. Read More.
