Spot removed through ‘mental surgery’; joy restored

One morning, I found a black spot on the palm of my hand. My first thought was, “Oh, no—not another challenge.” Then I realized I needed to rise to the challenge and be willing to learn what needed to be learned.

The first thing I did was to claim the presence of God, good. I declared that since God is all present, nothing unlike Him could present itself to my experience. This is the same simple but powerful idea I learned in Sunday School: “There is not a spot where God is not.” I also knew that as God’s creation, I was created in His image, or likeness. As man, the spiritual image of God—and this includes everyone—we are perfect. Therefore, I was perfect, without fault. This meant that a seeming imperfection, manifest as a black spot, could not attach itself to me. I prayed with these ideas over the next few weeks and soon saw that the mark had decreased in size and intensity of color.
