Fractured bone healed

On a vacation abroad earlier this year, I fell on the stairs in a subway station and injured my foot. I immediately declared to myself a statement I remembered from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “Accidents are unknown to God . . .” (p. 424). I knew that was true because God is all good and knows only good, and I felt confident that I was enveloped in God’s love and care. I was able to continue my travel to a friend’s home while I quietly repeated “the scientific statement of being,” which begins, “There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter” (Science and Health, p. 468). This helped me to feel close to God.

As the afternoon went on, the pain became acute. My friend was concerned, and I agreed to go to the emergency room. After taking X-rays, the doctors informed me that I had a fractured bone in my heel, and they recommended surgery. They said that the surgery could wait for a couple of weeks until I returned home but that I should not walk on the foot under any circumstances. In spite of their concern, I felt confident that I could rely on Christian Science for healing, as I have since I was a child in a Christian Science Sunday School. I was very grateful to use this time as an opportunity to turn to God.

I called a Christian Science practitioner for metaphysical treatment and spent a couple of days praying with many helpful ideas from the Bible and Mrs. Eddy’s writings. I also listened to episodes of the Sentinel Watch podcast and audio versions of articles from the Christian Science periodicals on I felt calm and joyful and had absolutely no fear. Soon I was overwhelmed with gratitude, knowing that I was healed.
