Healing after bike accident

“You live in Spirit.” I affirmed this in prayer after an accident while riding my bicycle caused me to land on some rocks, banging up my wrist, arm, and head. I’d been reading the series of reminiscences published as We Knew Mary Baker Eddy, Expanded Edition, Volumes 1 and 2, and had been very inspired by the comments from people who had known Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science and founder of this magazine. This study helped me to be spiritually alert—to realize I could stay prayerfully with Spirit, God, and stay out of a matter-based view that would confine me to pain and suffering. 

After dusting myself off, I was able to ride my bike the rest of the way home, continuing to pray. Although I was in pain, I was not going to succumb to the suggestion that I had been damaged and needed to be repaired. 

Upon arriving home, I cleaned up and rested in a chair, letting God’s angel messages minister to me. I was still in quite a bit of discomfort but sat listening to thoughts about how God cherished me as His beloved child. I kept reminding myself that if I am living in Spirit as Spirit’s image and likeness, then I do not need to think about or analyze how bad any injuries are.
