Finger healed

Several years after we had built a new home, a job opportunity for my husband opened up in a different state. As with most things, my first priority in preparing for the move was to pray. I’ve learned that a willingness to quietly listen for God’s direction always helps to clarify our next steps. I prayed to know that not only would this new job bless my husband’s career, but that the experience and integrity that he would bring to the position would bless our new community as well.

About a week before the move, I slipped on wet grass while carrying things to the car and landed on one of my fingers. The initial pain was intense, but after quieting my thought to hear God’s angel message that He was tenderly caring for me, the pain subsided. Mary Baker Eddy writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “Under divine Providence there can be no accidents, since there is no room for imperfection in perfection” (p. 424). I had proved the truth of this statement on other occasions, and this was a source of strength in meeting this challenge. But over the next few days, the finger was quite painful if bumped, and bending it was out of the question. Christian Science has always been an effective healing method for me, so I did not seek medical treatment but merely wrapped it to protect it during the move. Most important, I vigilantly continued to pray to see more clearly my totally spiritual nature.
