I was riding my bike one afternoon earlier this month, while leaving the pavement to avoid another walker, I hit a curb and fell onto the concrete. My arm started to really hurt overnight so I went to the ER the next morning. The doctors there told me I had fractured my elbow. After having been laid off during the pandemic, I was starting a new job in just a few days so this news was very disappointing to hear. But I thought of 3 things, my 3 favorite Christian Science truths:
- I am made in God’s image & likeness
- I am not material, I am spiritual
- I am God’s perfect child.
My Dad and I prayed together. Three days later, I went to a surgeon. He cut off my cast and said my arm was in good condition and I could start moving it. I started my new job with both functioning arms and no pain. That same day my new company was setting up in a new location, I was able to help with the move which included carrying 100 pound planters upstairs.
