Protected from injury

Protected from injury  

I had left the house in a hurry to go to the Wednesday testimony meeting at my branch Church of Christ, Scientist. I was to be the Reader that night. My left arm was filled with books when I went outside to my car, which was parked on the street. As I opened the door, a loud roar filled my ears. A large truck was coming at high speed down my side of the street, so I hurriedly jumped into the car, grabbed the top of the heavy door with my right hand, and pulled on the door to get it out of the truck’s way. However, the fingers of my right hand were still grasping the top of the window frame as the door slammed shut, and they felt the impact.

Quickly I opened the door with my other hand and freed my fingers. My thoughts went immediately to the truth: I live in the spiritual kingdom of God, which is governed by divine Principle, not chance. All is under God’s perfect control, so in reality there can be no accidents and no injuries. I am intact and free!

When I looked at my fingers, they had no marks on them. There wasn’t even pain—just a hint of soreness, which quickly disappeared and never returned.

Pausing to think about what had just occurred, I realized I had allowed myself no time to feel fear. I had simply refused to accept that a child of God—me or anyone—could be subject to any mishap, and the result was immediate healing. Two favorite Bible passages had come to my thought: from the ninety-first Psalm, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty,” and from the forty-sixth Psalm, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” I had just experienced the truth of those words in a very practical way, and I was flooded with awe and gratitude for God, who is ever-present Love.

This incident would commonly be called an accident. However, I had been studying Christian Science, and had seen many healings through divinely scientific Christian prayer and had previously escaped injury in a car crash. Accident can be defined as something unplanned or outside God’s control. But the spiritual fact is that God is always in control of His entire creation. Harmony is God’s law. This experience had just proven to me that an accident has no power to harm me or anyone—no power to disorder anything in God’s kingdom.
