Quick recovery from injured ribs
I learned a lesson about obedience to divine Truth when I injured my ribs in a mountain biking accident. I was in a lot of pain, and my brother told me that my symptoms were similar to ones he’d had after an accident. When he said it took him over a month to recover, my heart sank.
Turning to God for inspiration and help, as I always do when confronted with problems, I prayed with this passage in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God’s unerring direction and thus bring out harmony” (p. 424).
I tried to draw closer to God, Mind, but I felt mentally stuck and was still in a lot of pain. So I called a Christian Science practitioner for help. She recommended that I pray with the same passage I had already been studying.
