Fear fails to overwhelm

One day, when I was in college, I was crossing the street on my way to the beach. I was at a crosswalk, waiting patiently for the traffic to clear, when cars in the lane closest to me started to stack up waiting for me to cross. Because of a bend in the road, I couldn’t see any traffic in the second lane, so I waved “thank you” and proceeded to cross the street. In an instant, I was struck by a car in the second lane. The car was traveling fast, and I ended up much farther down the road. 

I remained conscious throughout the ordeal. My immediate reaction was one of disbelief that I had stepped in front of a moving car. My next thought, however, was more of a declaration of my true existence; I was under God’s care and not subject to accidents (see Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 424). When I tried to get up, I was in pain. Several concerned and caring people started to gather around me. One gentleman reassured me that I would be fine.
