Pain from nettle stings quickly healed

It was early morning, and I was walking down a trail along the river near our home, when I ended up inadvertently wandering off the trail. This is easy to do because of the lush vegetation in the section of the trail I was on. By the time I realized I’d gone off course, I was in the middle of a thicket of stinging nettle plants.

A minor encounter with a stinging nettle typically causes some discomfort, but because my hands, arms, and legs had all come into contact with multiple plants, I was quite uncomfortable. However, even before I backed out of the nettles and returned to the trail, I started praying about the simple mistake of going off trail. I prayed to know that God never makes mistakes, and that man can experience nothing outside of God’s spiritual and perfect creation.

While those thoughts were comforting, the  pain from the nettle stings continued. I realized I needed to feel more deeply the presence of God then and there, and to understand the fact that God’s spiritual creation is the only reality. I quieted my thoughts and listened for inspiration.
