Deep cut healed quickly

As an artist I am accustomed to cutting mat board with a utility knife and straight edge, so I decided to use the same method to cut some Plexiglas. I put a new blade in the utility knife and began cutting. I found I had to press quite a bit harder to cut the Plexiglas, so when the blade jumped the straight edge, it cut deeply into my finger and fingernail.

I began to pray immediately, and the first thought that came was that this picture of accident could not possibly be true because there could not be a moment when God was absent and His law of harmony not in operation. I grabbed a paper towel and wrapped it around the finger, not looking again at the injury.

I started walking around the backyard declaring the presence and power of God, good, and that His law of harmony was in operation. I affirmed that as God’s manifestation I could not be separated from Him or be anything less than His perfect reflection. I knew that the picture of accident was an aggressive suggestion of so-called mortal mind, and I affirmed that there is only the divine Mind and its manifestation. Many truths flooded my thought as I walked around the backyard, and I declared each one out loud with authority. I continued doing this until I felt at peace.
