One night I had a mishap in our home and lost consciousness

One night I had a mishap in our home and lost consciousness. When I became conscious again, my husband was calling my name. The first thought that came to me was (Ps. 23:1), "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want." Immediately I asked my husband to call a Christian Science practitioner.

Because there was severe pain in my arm and shoulder, my thoughts were filled with fear; but that was allayed as soon as the practitioner began to work. Then I was able to realize clearly that man has never fallen, and I dwelt on the many truths we learn in Christian Science. For three days I was completely free from fear, and on the third night I felt my arm slip into place at the shoulder. I was completely healed.

Another healing was that of a painful and ugly sore on my lip. Because the sore was so evident for everyone to see, I became very sensitive and at times discouraged. But by persistently knowing the truth of God and of man as His idea and by being more steadfast in the study of Christian Science, I grew spiritually and was able to see the nothingness of the sore, which then disappeared. I am deeply appreciative of the practitioner who stood by me, enabling me to work more earnestly.
