Scalding quickly healed

I was baking bread one afternoon and decided to make a cup of tea. While I was pouring the boiling water, it accidentally splashed onto my face. The pain was excruciating. It was difficult to think or pray. I called a Christian Science practitioner to pray with me. Her words of comfort quieted me and helped me turn to God.

As I prayed, I was reminded of how close I had felt to God, divine Love, during the previous few months, which had been a time of tremendous spiritual growth and transformation. This feeling of closeness to Love made it easier to trust Love to care for me. Instead of being mesmerized by pain, I felt Love’s tangible, healing presence. God assured me that I was safe and that He was showing me the way forward, step by step. It felt right to continue with my baking. 

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, wrote: “Look away from the body into Truth and Love, the Principle of all happiness, harmony, and immortality. Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 261).
