Burned hand instantaneously healed

One day as I was walking in the basement of a building, I tripped and started to fall forward. Instinctively, I reached out to grab the nearest thing, which happened to be a pipe. Most of the pipe was covered in insulation because it was used to move very hot water around the building. But my hand landed on an uncovered part that was connecting two separate sections of pipe.

Although I regained my balance and stopped my fall, my hand had been burned by the extremely hot pipe.

I immediately began to pray to understand that despite the physical evidence, God was actually protecting me right at that very moment. A favorite statement from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy came to me: “Accidents are unknown to God …” (p. 424). That seemed very applicable to this situation, and I was comforted by contemplating the implications of it. I realized that no accident could possibly occur in God’s all-good, spiritual kingdom, where we all really dwell as God’s spiritual ideas, so I could not have been burned.
