Good fills all space

Originally written in German, Willy’s testimony first appeared in the December 2013 German, French, Portuguese, and Spanish editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

I went to the town swimming pool with my mom and my sister Sophie. Sophie and I decided to go on the slide together. When it was my turn to slide down, I held on to the bar above the slide to wait for the light to turn green, which meant that I could go. Then I leaned back to get momentum, and as I took off, I hit my forehead hard against the bar. Right after this happened, I realized I had a cut. When I arrived at the bottom, Sophie and my mom were already coming toward me. The pool supervisor sent me to the first aid room, saying that he would be right with us.

During this time my mom and I prayed. My mom reminded me that there are no accidents in God’s universe. Mary Baker Eddy wrote about this on page 424 in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and I know this sentence well: “Under divine Providence there can be no accidents, since there is no room for imperfection in perfection.” We were very sure that I had always been under divine Providence, or God’s divine plan for me. And in God’s loving plan there is never anything imperfect, such as an injury. We also thought about how evil of any kind has no power, because God is good and fills all space. With God, there’s no room for anything bad.
