No more knee trouble

Last fall I injured my knee. After I hobbled around the house for a few days, the discomfort grew worse and I couldn’t put any weight on it, so I had to use crutches. At this point it was Saturday night, and the next morning I would need to fulfill my responsibility as superintendent of our Sunday School. I didn’t think I should appear on crutches, and I considered finding someone to fill in for me. 

However, as I prayed, I realized the suggestion not to show up on crutches was coming from a false sense of pride. As I corrected this imposition on my thought, I found myself instead thinking: “What better place to have a healing than in Sunday School?” 

The next morning I was right there at my post as superintendent and felt surrounded by so much love. No one asked what had happened, but members let me know in gentle ways that they were happy to help if I needed it. It was no surprise that when I got home I was able to walk without the crutches.
