Full recovery after foot injury
One afternoon, I stepped over a child safety gate at the top of the stairs and accidentally slipped down three steps, twisting and hurting my foot. I was able to stand, and as I started down the rest of the stairs I turned to God in prayer for help.
I repeated “the scientific statement of being” from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy (see p. 468). This helped me reason spiritually and refute the suggestion that I could slip up, fall, or be distracted from my love for God. I knew I needed to immediately quiet fearful thoughts that claimed I was mortal, material, and vulnerable to material mistakes and difficulties.
