It was just after breakfast when I felt a sharp pain in my shoulder

It was just after breakfast when I felt a sharp pain in my shoulder. When it didn't go away, I made my way into the family room and lay down on the sofa. I tried to think of someone to help me pray. I tried to call my mom at the Christian Science Reading Room, but she had just left home and would not arrive there until later. My dad was at work, so I called a Christian Science practitioner I know. She was not in, so I left a message on her answering machine. Since there was no person around to help me, I turned to God.

For Sunday School, our assignment had been to read some Christian Science literature during the week. I had been reading Science and Health, so I picked up where I had left off at the top of page six. It was exactly what I needed! Reading the page made me realize how God loves us; therefore we cannot sin and we will always be protected. There is one part that I particularly like. It is: "'God is Love.' More than this we cannot ask, higher we cannot look, farther we cannot go." That thought was very comforting.
