Pain and stiffness in arm healed

Recently I spent three hours outside, carrying a tall ladder with me as I cleaned all the windows of our house. 

Around bedtime my right elbow became a little sore. I dismissed the discomfort as something that could never be part of my identity as God’s child, and went to bed without further thought. Later, though, I was awakened by extreme pain and stiffness in that arm.

After thinking about what I should do to address this situation, I turned my iPad on and listened to the weekly Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly. That week the subject was “Life.” While listening, I was reminded that there is only one creator: God. God made me in His image and likeness and gives me life, so I must reflect His perfection and spiritual nature. I knew that God is incapable of creating discomfort or any other material symptoms.
