Protected from head injury

I was in a hurry, as we so often are. I was running into the house to grab something from the bedroom before heading out again. We had just had heavy rains, and I failed to notice the shower had backed up. There was a quarter inch of water covering the steps into the bathroom and down I went, cracking my head hard on one of the steps. I lay there for a moment, starting to think of how I might be hurt and feeling upset with my husband, who was supposed to have fixed the shower. 

Instantly, I knew that I had to pray and also let go of negative thoughts that would impede listening to God. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, once said: “Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them. It is plain that nothing can be added to the mind already full. There is no door through which evil can enter, and no space for evil to fill in a mind filled with goodness” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 210). I had to close the door on evil or negative thoughts right then and welcome in spiritual truths.
