A quick healing

One morning several years ago, I began to feel some prickly numbness in my left foot, much like an ice skater feels when he or she has skated in cold weather a little too long and takes the skates off so the foot will “wake up” again. It was annoying, but I didn’t think much about it until the next day it seemed to get worse and include more of my foot. At that point, I began to pray to affirm that “. . . ‘there is no death, no inaction, diseased action, overaction, nor reaction’ ” (Science and Health, pp. 427–428). I knew that inharmonious action did not come from God, and that, in Truth, the only action there is has its source in God. I recognized that mortal mind and mortal body have only the power we accede to them, since omnipotent divine Mind, God, governs all. 

Later that morning, however, while I was at work, I started to become genuinely concerned. The numbness had begun to travel up my leg, and fear crept in—where would it stop?
