I have experienced a wonderful protection through reliance upon Truth, divine Love. "God is Love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him." When trials come to us we can abide in Him.

One afternoon, as I was alone at home, I began to clean the walls of a room. One side was almost cleaned; and as I was standing on the ladder, I heard something break behind me. I immediately thought of the rope that held the ladder. The thought came, "What shall I do?" But the answer came also immediately: "I am not afraid, I shall find refuge in God, who is our ever-present help in trouble." Like a child, I trusted in God. The next moment I saw nothing but received a terrible blow in the back. The senses warned me that I had suffered a serious injury, and I soon found that my arm was bleeding and very badly swollen; but I clung steadfastly to the promise, "They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone," and arising, I continued my work, holding steadily to the truth that in God there are no accidents.
