Spirit can form us anew

Sometimes a situation that seems especially challenging turns out to be an opportunity for great progress.

When I was taking my car for servicing one day some years ago, I was singing and feeling very happy. As I was doing this, a thought kept coming to me: "You are a spiritual idea." From my study of Christian Science, I knew that this was an affirmation that man is not material but is instead the spiritual child of God. And in a few moments this idea literally became a life-saver for me. With no warning, my car was hit by another traveling at great speed. I lost control of the car, which was severely damaged and carried some distance by the impact.

The people in the nearby cars came to assist me. I was in a state of shock, and I could hardly breathe. I leaned on the car to keep from falling. An ambulance and the police came immediately.
