All is well

One evening I was cutting a bottle for a project. The cutter was very sharp, and it stuck in my hand. I removed it and yelled out in pain. My grandmother and mother came to help. My mother cleaned my hand and tied a small piece of cloth to cover it. She told me about God’s love, which never hurts, and also reminded me of “the scientific statement of being” from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy (see p. 468), which I had learned in Sunday School. 

I then called a Christian Science practitioner for help. She lovingly told me these words from Science and Health: “Accidents are unknown to God …” (p. 424). She also said, “You are the expression of God, Soul, and Soul cannot have pain.” I started feeling better and prayed with these spiritual truths. Soon the bleeding stopped, and my mother covered the wound with a fresh cloth. I felt much better.
