A college student and a quick healing

One day I was boiling water on the stove for pasta and happened to spill some on my socked feet. When I removed my socks, I saw that my feet and toes were very burned. 

I prayed; that is, I opened myself up to God’s view of what was really going on. Intuitively, I knew that God would not sanction suffering, and He is the only cause. Immediately, the pain vanished. No epiphany was necessary, so effortless and natural was the truth I felt. I was open to God’s goodness and healing power. God was there caring for me, and that was the beginning and the end of it.

The sixth tenet of Christian Science says: “And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus; to do unto others as we would have them do unto us; and to be merciful, just, and pure” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 497).
