In the way bumps in the road can make cars slow down, our lives can slow down when we see sickness, sin, and death as real, without understanding God's goodness and our purpose to be spiritual and perfect. But even with bumps, the road will be smooth again afterward. I asked myself, Is the law of God applicable for the purpose of life now? I found it was, and it started a brand-new thing within my thinking.

My journey on a bumpy road was going to see my 98-year-old mum in a nursing home, where she had been for six months, partially paralyzed and suffering from diabetes. She was not expected to live. My heart was broken, and I prayed. I knew my mum was the true image and likeness of God, and denied thoughts of death and illness. Affirming the truth is the only way to prove God's power over His beloved children. When I think of the Bible words on "promise," I know God never promised we will be having sickness. He promised to give us strength to overcome sickness, sin, and death. As we understand we are spiritual and perfect children of the living God, divine law and power are established in us to accomplish health, where sickness has struck and built up bumps for us. And the Love that never fails encouraged me to trust that all would be well.
