I knew I was in God's arms

My name is Olivia. I like to rollerblade after school. One day, when I was in third grade, I was racing by myself. I saw the end of the sidewalk coming, and I felt myself getting a little unbalanced. Then my foot slipped forward and I fell. I scraped my leg on the cement.

The moment I fell, I said to myself: “God is in control. God is Mind, so I can never slip into error. God catches me in His arms.” Then I thought about how God’s kingdom is all around. I think it is like a giant pillow. So if I fall, I can only fall onto a soft pillow.

Then I got up and went inside my house to tell my mom. I told my mom that when I fell down and said those things to myself, it didn’t hurt because I knew I was in God’s arms. The scratches never hurt and were healed in about two days. I am grateful that God is always there to catch me.
