Nothing but spiritual things

One Sunday, I had a very bad headache. And I didn't feel well. So I decided to pray. I wanted to understand that I was made in the image and likeness of God. God creates infinite good. That's why I had to be created good. And because I was God's image, I could only reflect good.

I held to these truths, but my head still hurt. So then I felt I should refuse to accept the thought that something bad could govern me, or that evil was real and more powerful than God. I knew I could do this because God is All, so there is no place for evil.

My mother was not home at the time. But I remembered what she had told me when I was sick before. She said, "The child of God is not limited, but unlimited." So then my head couldn't really be limited. I thought about how it contained nothing but spiritual things. And because sickness is not created by God, it could not have a place in me.

I prayed with these thoughts for about an hour, and then I felt very well again. I was healed!
