Protected from injury

I had left the house in a hurry to go to the Wednesday testimony meeting at my branch Church of Christ, Scientist. I was to be the Reader that night. My left arm was filled with books when I went outside to my car, which was parked on the street. As I opened the door, a loud roar filled my ears. A large truck was coming at high speed down my side of the street, so I hurriedly jumped into the car, grabbed the top of the heavy door with my right hand, and pulled on the door to get it out of the truck’s way. However, the fingers of my right hand were still grasping the top of the window frame as the door slammed shut, and they felt the impact. 

Quickly I opened the door with my other hand and freed my fingers. My thoughts went immediately to the truth: I live in the spiritual kingdom of God, which is governed by divine Principle, not chance. All is under God’s perfect control, so in reality there can be no accidents and no injuries. I am intact and free! 

We'd love to hear from you!
