Finger injury healed quickly

I am so grateful to be able to share a healing I experienced recently. The bottom half of our stable door was latched closed, and as I was about to close the top half, a big gust of wind blew the top door onto the bottom door with full force, catching the tip of one of my fingers in the middle. 

The pain was immense, and my first thought was that I would lose my fingernail. Immediately I countered that by stating out loud the first two sentences of “the scientific statement of being” from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all.” The entire statement, which is on page 468, is read at the end of each Christian Science Sunday church service and also at the end of Sunday School, where I had learned it as a child. 

I continued reasoning with that statement until I was clear in thought that, just as the door was matter and couldn’t feel a thing, neither could my finger, which was also matter. Man, as the statement goes on to say, is the image of God and is spiritual, so I knew the door had never touched the real substance of my being.
