“No!” and know
One Sunday, as I was putting things away after a volleyball tournament, I twisted my back through some heavy lifting. Every move took my breath away and was quite painful. I went to my office and took a few moments to just sit and listen for thoughts about God and to find out what God was knowing about me.
I remembered an instantaneous healing I’d had a few years earlier. Soon after my family pulled into a camp site, I had a brush with poison oak. Within seconds, my legs felt as though they were on fire, and I started to pray. What came to me in prayer was quite simply “No!” There was such clarity with that single word that I felt it was divinely inspired; it was a powerful way to reject evils such as poison and pain as not created or caused by God and to affirm what I had learned in Christian Science of the reality of God as infinite good.
