QUICK HEALING OF INJURED FOOT

One afternoon I badly damaged my foot, when, in a rush, I awkwardly stepped through an exterior doorway. It was a mistake, for which I felt foolish. But right away I realized that self-condemnation — even acknowledging stupidity — wasn't a helpful, or healing, state of thought. I quickly turned to God in prayer, confirming that I couldn't be wrenched from divine care, even by my own mistakes.

This passage from a beautiful, reassuring psalm comforted me, so I claimed it as a promise of healing: "I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope" (Ps. 16:8, 9). Because I've found a spiritual approach most effective with health issues in my life, I stayed with prayer, even though I couldn't put any weight on my foot and had to hop from point to point.
