Sore throat quickly healed

A while ago I woke up with a very sore throat and the inability to breathe easily or swallow normally. This was very uncomfortable and I felt disheartened.  

Initially, I tried to reason through how this might have happened; I was trying to figure out why I woke up feeling so bad. Then I decided to read the Bible Lesson for that week, which is found in the Christian Science Quarterly and includes passages from the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the citations included this sentence: “All substance, intelligence, wisdom, being, immortality, cause, and effect belong to God” (p. 275). 

I realized I had been so silly trying to figure out a material cause and effect, rather than acknowledging that all cause and effect belong to God! I was aware that God is all-power and has made each of us whole. Before waking up to this fact, I had just been speculating.
