About a year ago, extended family came for an unexpected visit. We spent a couple of days at a relative’s home sitting around talking, but not doing much else. After this, I became very stiff and had quite a bit of pain in my neck, one of my shoulders, and my whole arm. I was in constant pain day and night, and someone told me it probably had to do with a pinched nerve.
I was so grateful for the inspiration that came to me over the course of the next few weeks as I prayed about this situation.
There were small insights along the way that kept me going. Very basic, but strong and comforting truths such as the following: God is good, and the only cause; therefore, nothing but good can be part of my being. God is All, and in His allness there is no room for the limitations called material conditions. I am God’s spiritual manifestation; pain, not having a creator, is nothing’s manifestation. God is supreme, the only governor of His creation. Since I am at one with God, my victory is already present.
