Gaining a foothold

One of my favorite things to do is walk the dog. So I was very perturbed when, a few years ago, my right heel began to hurt frequently on these outings. I didn’t want to stop walking the dog, so I limped along for months, wishing the pain would go away.

I often listened to the Christian Science Bible Lesson on these walks to help prepare for my position in church as Second Reader. I noticed I never experienced pain or limping during the Sunday church services, and I remembered the story in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy of the elderly lame actor who could hardly walk, but when his cue came to go on stage he leaped up like a young man, performing his part with ease and able to walk normally (see p. 261). I thought, “That’s just like me!” I knew I was so focused on the biblical truths I was reading to the congregation that there was no room left in my consciousness for a sore foot. I endeavored to bring that same level of spiritual thinking to the rest of the week.
