Swift recovery from injury

One day last year I was shopping in a grocery store when I twisted my ankle. Immediately there was great pain in my foot, and I began walking with a limp. 

I thought a little about my spiritual being, which I’d learned is in God and therefore untouched by accidents (see Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 424). My thinking was not very decisive, though, as I was concentrating on finishing up shopping and going home. At the end of the day I thought that after a good night’s sleep I would be fine, but in the morning, the pain was still there and walking was still very difficult.

That morning I sat down, stopped thinking about my foot, and began to pray as I do each day. I stayed with the fact that God, divine Mind, was governing every aspect of my being. I knew that this spiritual fact was true and that all in God’s infinite creation is in harmony. I prayed for my community, the nation, and the world.
