God knows me, and error doesn’t!

One morning I went into my mom and dad’s room and told them that my stomach hurt. Right that minute, we started praying. My mom and dad were telling me the truth about me. They reminded me that God can’t make His children sick. God loves us. 

My mom called a Christian Science practitioner for help. The practitioner told me that my upset tummy was like a bad dream. And I could “wake up” from it. This was a helpful thought because I understood God and His loving protection. 

Later when I went to bed, an angel came to my thinking (see definition of angels in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, page 581). The angel was a thought that went something like this: “Whitney, I will protect you.” This angel thought had to be from God! It couldn’t have been from error. Error doesn’t know who I am, and it can’t tell me I am sick. Error is a mistake. It’s a belief that God is not All.
