One day when descending the steps to my office, I felt a bolt of extreme pain in one leg. I seemed to be locked to the step—unable to move. At first the thoughts came "How will you make it to your door? Will you be able to drive home?" But strong, spiritual truths quickly began filling my thought as I consciously turned to God for the inspiration I knew would bring physical healing. I recalled a line from Hymn 134 in the Christian Science Hymnal: "Held in Thy law, I stand." Then came a statement from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 480): "Consciousness, as well as action, is governed by Mind,—is in God, the origin and governor of all that Science reveals."

These God-derived messages reinstated the spiritual conviction I needed in order to confront the immobility as a lie about me, for I knew I am in reality the perfect, spiritual child of God. Just a moment of quietly standing and listening to God brought assurance that Love was supporting me.
