Healing of injured ribs

A few summers ago on a Saturday afternoon, I took my wife and some friends out on our boat on Lake Michigan. At the end of a fun day, we hitched the boat to its trailer to drive it home. The boat was in the marina parking lot, and I was inside it, putting away all the equipment. My wife and our friends were loading the rest of our gear into the car and were unable to see me or what I was doing. 

As I began to climb down from the boat backward, I put my foot down where the ladder should have been, but it wasn’t there and I fell. My side hit part of the engine, and then I fell the rest of the way to the parking lot. I lay there declaring that I could not fall from my “high estate” (see Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 258); I am upheld by God’s supreme government with His loving arms all around me. I said aloud “the scientific statement of being” from Science and Health (p. 468), which reads in part, “There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter.... Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual.” While I was lying on the ground, a man came up behind me and started to rub my back to offer comfort. I heard him say to me that he wasn’t going to leave until I was all right.

After a while, I stood up. While standing, I felt some bones moving in my rib cage, and I was having a hard time breathing. I held on to the thought that everything is completely intact in God’s kingdom, and I am spiritual and always in this kingdom.
