FREEDOM FROM THE EFFECTS OF A FALL

One autumn morning a few years ago, I was clearing leaves from a gutter on the roof of our home. Suddenly the ladder I was standing on slipped at ground level, and I fell about 20 feet to the ground. My wife was not at home at the time, but after about ten minutes of lying flat on my back, and reaching out to God in prayer, I was able to get up and slowly walk into the house.

I headed for a comfortable chair, continuing to pray with the spiritual truths that I knew would show me my present well-being under God's care. I had learned in Christian Science that it was essential to face and resist fearful thoughts—which only reinforce the opposite of our spiritual nature and condition. This I did vigorously.
