Quick healing of ankle injuries

During one summer before I headed back to college, I sprained my ankle playing tennis. It was frustrating because I was looking forward to my senior year on the volleyball team. I was determined to play, and in my impatience I reinjured the ankle a few times. 

Although I was praying to heal the injury in Christian Science, I was also outlining when and how I thought the healing should happen and was continually checking to see if my ankle was still stiff. Eventually I realized this willful approach was hindering progress. I stopped checking my ankle and started checking my thoughts instead. Rather than asking myself, “How does the ankle feel?” I asked, “Am I seeing what God sees?”
