Give consent to health

March 13, 2018 | 16 comments

If you’re struggling with a health issue, have you consented to health today?

Humans are always consenting to something.

If one hears a news report that flu is raging through their community and are tempted to think they might pick it up, they just consented to catching the flu.

If one looks at their body, sees a symptom of disease and believes it might get worse. They just consented to it getting worse.

There’s a wiser way to consent. Always consent to health!

As God’s creation, we are endowed with health that is never lost. It’s a fixed part of our being. Like our name, we never lose it. We can’t lose our health anymore than we could lose our identity with God. God and health are synonymous, and as children of God, we reflect a God in perfect health.

Mary Baker Eddy wrote,

“If you decide that climate or atmosphere is unhealthy, it will be so to you. Your decisions will master you, whichever direction they take. Reverse the case. Stand porter at the door of thought. Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously”
Science and Health, p. 392.

Watch what you consent to. Consent to health! And never to anything less.

  1. Thank you so much for this ‘view’, Evan. My dear, caring husband (not a Christian Scientist ) constantly worries about me doing too much about the house or garden, etc. and wanting me to rest.
    I shall gently share with him that I am consenting to health, and so he doesn’t need to worry.

  2. Thank you Evan. Media images are constantly pushing disease and fear. I reach for the remote or radio volume dial. This is a great reminder.

  3. The idea of consenting is interesting…WHAT are we consenting to in our daily walk and talk?

    The accompanying photograph is exquisite. Thank you!

  4. Thanks, as always, Evan.

    I try to realize that God’s idea, man (you n me and all, in Fact), is “clueless” about contagion or ill-health of any kind. Man cannot in fact “decide” for or against the power of atmosphere being good or bad, for God’s ideas live in the atmosphere of Love divine, only.

    It helps me to keep my thought in the absolute truth as much as possible.


  5. Thank you Evan. I consent to health today and every day. 🙂
    We are constantly having suggestions of all kinds of conditions being presented to us by mortal mind and the five senses. By understanding that is not reality, those suggestions no longer matter. They are background chatter. Every day I try to see the true report, reality from God’s viewpoint. God thinking love and all of those ideas (Life) manifested and individually expressed in every way possible. It is as beautiful as a sunset-every one of us. We are all truly wonderfully made!

    1. This is an excellent testimony Kirsten. Thank you.

      Jesus told his followers, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” At times it is difficult to just ignore “background chatter” however Christ living within our thoughts is providing us with the wisdom and understanding necessary to set us free from erroneous background chatter.

      In time the chatter will just go away, for it has no lasting life. God is love.

  6. I give consent to peace today. I give consent to uprightness , to Joy, to Freedom!

    Thank you ! I rejoice in Love’s Allness and gentleness and power…here. now, and always to come. I refuse error and choose Truth. I give permission to Life’s sweet control!…for all ! ♡♡♡

  7. Im really enjoying your daily emails!!! I am printing this for my kids to read. Its so simple and such a clear explanation! Thank you!

  8. Thank you, all. Truth is the sunshine that dispels the darkness in our thought—and brings joy and love to all around us. Truth is the light that shows us we are spiritual beings—healthy, whole, complete—made in the image of God, untouched by any mortal sense of being.

  9. Consent to health, consent to good, is consenting to God.
    Thank you for this powerful reminder.
    Bless you and everyone.

  10. Thank you for this reminder Evan. SpiritViewFan: Right-on!! Your comment is a keeper:
