I have one long tooth in front that is getting loose and is probably going to fall out soon. The other day I jumped off the couch. Somehow my knee hit my chin, and my long tooth went right through my tongue.
There was a lot of blood, but I decided not to look in the mirror. Instead, I went straight to my room to get my Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and started praying. My little sister started praying and singing hymns, too.
My mommy read a sentence from Science and Health to me that said, “All that really exists is the divine Mind and its idea, and in this Mind the entire being is found harmonious and eternal” (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 151).
Mommy asked, “Is God everywhere?”
My sister and I both yelled, “Yes!”
Then Mommy asked, “Is God everywhere, everywhere, everywhere?”
We yelled, “Yes!”
Then Mommy asked, “If God is everywhere, can there be any spot where there is a hurt?”
We yelled, “No!”
We prayed together for a few more minutes, thinking about the idea that “there is no spot where God is not,” because God is all that really exists in every spot. Then, suddenly, I felt healed. I told Mommy that it didn’t hurt anymore, and I got up to play. My tongue was all better.
Thank You, God, for this quick healing and for being everywhere, filling every spot all the time.
