Responding to angels

One day, stepping out of our back door, I wrenched my ankle severely. Because of what Christian Science has taught me of God's allness, I dismissed the occurrence as error, hence unreal. However, later in the day the ankle began to swell and the pain seemed unbearable. We had planned to attend a function involving young people, and so as not to upset plans, I went. I might just as well have stayed home.

Afterward, as I was being helped to the car, a friend said to me: "You are believing you have a hard path to walk." I felt I had been smitten. And although the words stung, I saw that what had been said was actually correct. I had been believing that I had many problems. And resenting it too. I decided I would ask my friend, who is also a Christian Scientist, to pray for me. And she agreed to.
