In Christian Science I've learned that I am never really alone

In Christian Science I've learned that I am never really alone. God is always right at hand, and His active love constantly provides all that we need.

One evening I tried out a recipe I'd read for making peanut butter in a blender. I must have overloaded the blender because when I turned it on, the container popped out of its base and sailed into the air, exposing whirring knives spewing peanut butter all over the kitchen. Without thinking, I grabbed for the container, and my thumb went into the knives.

With my other hand I turned off the blender, then leaned against the counter, stunned. At first my only thought was "I don't believe this." Then in just a few seconds the understanding I had gained of Truth through my long study and application of Christian Science asserted itself, and I heard myself shouting, "Nothing has happened. I am the perfect, unharmed, spiritual idea of God. I am whole and complete because that's the way God made me."
