Perfection and physical healing

While I was attempting to fix a garden sprinkler, the screwdriver slipped, injuring my hand. I immediately turned to God in prayer. My prayer affirmed: "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual." This is "the scientific statement of being" from Science and Health (p. 468).

Looking away from the injury, away from matter, to divine Truth, I thought, "If I really believed this statement, I would be healed right now!" The honesty and humility of this simple observation instantaneously healed what had just moments before been a three-inch-long welt in the palm of my hand. This healing was very meaningful to me. I had witnessed Love's immediate healing power, which came in direct proportion to my acceptance of man's flawless being as God's image and likeness.
