Healing after motorcycle accident

I received the “pearl of great price,” the gift of Christian Science, eight years ago. Since then, I’ve had innumerable blessings in the form of overcoming severe health challenges, getting a good job, and strengthening relationships when I have turned to Christian Science. I was given purposeful work in a local Christian Science Society after I became a member, and I also took Primary class instruction. My love for church work and the love I feel from the society members impel me to come back almost every weekend, though I am posted in a different city.

One morning about a year ago, I was going to a bus stand in Gurdaspur (a city in Punjab, India) on my motorcycle to catch a bus to Pathankot (another city). As I made a turn, a boy on a motorcycle came from the opposite direction and hit my bike. Though neither he nor I fell, I felt a jerk on my left wrist. At that time it was not hurting much, so I continued to Pathankot. But that afternoon my wrist started to hurt a lot and swelled. I was unable to move it.

I called a Christian Science practitioner and asked her for prayerful treatment. She lovingly agreed to help and reminded me that in spiritual reality accidents are unreal, as God knows nothing about them (see Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 424). This means that what seemed to be an accident could not have any effect on me, God’s spiritual idea. I managed to come back to Gurdaspur in the evening, while I continued praying.
