God’s constant care

“All real being represents God, and is in Him. In this Science of being, man can no more relapse or collapse from perfection, than his divine Principle, or Father, can fall out of Himself into something below infinitude” (Mary Baker Eddy, No and Yes, p. 26). This was a passage a Christian Science practitioner sent me when I asked her to pray for me after I’d taken a fall down a long flight of stairs.

The accident had made walking and moving painful. The more I prayed with the ideas in this passage, the clearer they were to me. As God’s representative, how could I be anything less than perfect?

I also prayed with the ninety-first Psalm, especially this part about angels, or God’s thoughts: “He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone” (verses 11, 12). I thought, If that statement is true, it must be true for me. I am always held up by God. So, the notion that I could fall and be hurt could not, in reality, be true.
