I would like to share two wonderful experiences which have shown me that when trusting God's care, we are always assured of healing.
My first experience happened when I was walking down our side yard and slipped and fell, hurting my foot. I limped into the house and told my mom what had happened. We talked about my oneness with God and how, as the child of God, I could never be separated from Him or fall from this oneness. That night my family attended a public lecture on Christian Science. The lecturer talked about how important it is not to put false labels on yourself or others. It occurred to me that I had put a false label on myself by believing that I had fallen and needed to fix the trouble. I started to understand that because of my oneness with God I couldn't really be labeled as fallen or hurt. When I removed this false label from my thought, I was healed right away.
The second experience happened later. I was sitting on our porch reading a book, and my mom was working in the garden. A neighbor stopped by and asked us if we had seen their missing cocker spaniel that had run away over two hours ago. We had not seen the dog, but when mom came inside, she told us to get ready to get in the car because we were going to help look for the dog. When I asked her why we were doing this, she said it is our way of loving our neighbor as ourselves, or being a good Samaritan.
