Injuries from the past healed

One day I stood at the window in my office, looking into the garden and touching a small wound on my knuckle. I pondered the question of whether we can heal something that happened in the past but still weighs on us today. It seemed perfectly logical to me that this would be not just possible, but natural. There is only the present reality of God and His spiritual creation, and God fills this reality with His perfection, which is always whole and harmonious. 

My gaze fell on the wound. Two or three years earlier I had cut myself while cooking, taken care of the cut, and gone right back to cooking. Over time, the wounded area on my thumb had become ugly, and a scab had formed that continued to grow. 

The thought came to me that God does not cause accidents (see Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 424). If that was the case, then in actuality this cut had never been a reality affecting me in the past or today; how could I know something that God doesn’t know? Seen from the standpoint of absolute reality, I could not have injured myself because God continuously governs His entire creation. So I said aloud: “Father, let me demonstrate this.”
