Freedom from knee injury

I am a college volleyball coach, and several years ago I hurt my knee on the very first day of my pre-season camp. The pain was overwhelming at first, but after about ten minutes of affirming my oneness with God, I felt enveloped by a surge of divine Love that buoyed me with a wonderful sense of peace. 

The “Love surge” is a phrase I use to describe an important concept that has been the foundation of many profound healings in our family. To me it’s a moment of Truth—not reading or hearing or thinking about Truth—actually a moment of being bathed in Truth. A moment where we feel what God is—is All there is! A few years before, I would probably have prayed about “my knee,” but at this point I just prayed for that feeling of divine Love—a moment where the simplicity of the healing Christ completely overwhelms the seeming complexity of the human situation. 

Mary Baker Eddy writes about this on page 14 of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual,—neither in nor of matter,—and the body will then utter no complaints. If suffering from a belief in sickness, you will find yourself suddenly well.”
