I can always be helped by God

My name is Tyler and I live in Virginia. One day when I was about eight, my older brother Bryce and I were playing capture the flag with my friend Lindsay. I got hit in the nose by mistake and it started bleeding. I was scared that I had broken my nose. 

My mom came to help. She said God is with me and God holds me in His hands. So there was nothing to fear. Mom asked everyone to help pray for me and know that I am God’s child, whole, free, and unchanged. Lindsay also helped to comfort me by sharing Bible verses. At Sunday School I learn that I am the reflection of God. If God can’t be hurt, neither can His reflection. I understand that I am “the spiritual image and likeness of God.” This is how Mary Baker Eddy explains man in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 591).

In Science and Health it also says that Life, or God, is eternal and that “temporal life is a false sense of existence” (p. 122). This means to me that life and goodness go on forever. I can’t really be touched by anything unlike God, good. God’s spiritual image couldn’t have a broken nose.
