Inspiration from a Song leads to Healing

20191128 090751

During the summer before my sophomore year, I was interning in Washington DC and bent on getting stronger and ready for my second soccer season. During one of my training practices, I had a severe shin injury that immediately ended my practice and placed me on crutches for the rest of the summer which was heart breaking. During a church service at the Christian Science branch church in Alexandria, VA, hymn 350 was played which was a turning point in my life at that time. The hymn started with “All will be well” which was reassuring that God had control in my life. This inspiration started the healing of the shin. I was able to partake in my favorite sport once again which felt fulfilling.

Hymn 350 from the Christian Science Hymnal

Through the love of God our Saviour All will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor; All must be well;
Precious is the Love that healed us,
Perfect is the grace that sealed us,
Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us;
All , all is well.

Though we pass through tribulation, All will be well;
Ours is such a full salvation, All must be well;
Happy still, in God confiding,
Fruitful, when in Christ abiding,
Holy, through the Spirit’s guiding;
All, all is well.

We expect a bright tomorrow, All will be well;
Faith can sing through days of sorrow, all must be well;
While His truth we are applying,
And upon His love relying,
God is every need supplying,
All, all is well.
