Quick healing

While holidaying in Majorca some years ago, a friend and I took a pedalo (pedal boat) ride. When we had cleared the cove and were farther out to sea, I decided to jump over the side to have a swim. I felt quite apprehensive about this, but with a false sense of bravado, over the side I went. I swam around a bit, not feeling entirely comfortable, and then clambered back into the boat. As I hauled myself aboard, something gave my thigh a hefty thump and I felt some pain. As I sat in the boat, a relatively large arrow-shaped mark appeared on my thigh and exploded into hundreds of blisters. I concluded that I had been stung by something. I felt fearful looking at this spectacle, and the fear on my friend’s face was alarming. 

At the time I had been studying Christian Science for just a few years, and I still felt like a relatively new student. But I had experienced several healings, a much-improved career, and a happier life since beginning this study. So I started praying immediately with “the scientific statement of being” from Science and Health, agreeing that, as it says: “There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all” (p. 468). I quickly decided not to look at the area on my thigh again but to return to my hotel room to pray. I did not want to call into one of the many first-aid huts dotted around the coves, because I felt more secure relying on God.
