Testimonies of Healing

Foot injury healed

From the November 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I often remind myself that God never places anyone in a hopeless situation, and that we are never without His loving help. I experienced clear proof of this when I was at a family reunion last year. 

As I was carrying something from the kitchen to the garage, my right foot got caught in a crevice in the garage floor, and it became twisted as I fell. I got up immediately while mentally affirming that my perfection as God’s reflection was intact. I reasoned that I was not hurt because I could not fall from my original state of perfection as God’s spiritual, perfect idea—the true identity of each of us. 

Although I felt some pain, I was able to move about freely, acknowledging God as the source of my well-being, strength, and harmony. I remembered the instruction Mary Baker Eddy gives on page 397 of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “When an accident happens, you think or exclaim, ‘I am hurt!’ Your thought is more powerful than your words, more powerful than the accident itself, to make the injury real.”
