On the beach in Avalon my friend and I went to walk down to the jetty. The water was very rough and when it crashed up against the rocks it would splash up over our heads. As my friend and I were walking on the jetty, we were taking pictures and having a lot of fun. We were looking to see if any of the pictures turned out when a big wave crashed and got us soaking wet. We started laughing until we noticed that some girl had gotten blown off of the other end of the jetty. She was OK, but she had lost her prescription glasses. She was from another country and English was not her first language. After about 20 minutes of searching for her glasses, we started thinking these glasses were gone. At this moment I asked God for a “miracle” to find these glasses. This girl was crying and needed these glasses. All of a sudden I grabbed the glasses out of the water and ran over to her. I could feel God’s Love and was thankful for this healing experience.
What blessings can come from quiet, God-filled moments! I’m so grateful for one such moment I experienced over the Christmas season.
It was dinnertime and I was slicing a large cut of meat for a stir-fry dish. The knife was quite dull, making the job more difficult than it needed to be. Right then my husband passed through the kitchen and I asked if he would sharpen a few of my most-used knives. He did an excellent job. When I resumed cutting the beef, I found that the knife slipped through it like it was butter – and then through my finger. Looking down I realized that I had sliced off the top of my index finger, including part of the nail. It began to bleed profusely, so I grabbed a paper towel and wrapped it tightly.
While fixing dinner, I was listening to a favorite CD of Christmas choral music. At this critical moment, the music was particularly lush with the glorious transcendent quality that characterizes so much of this particular musical genre. I sat down at the kitchen table, closed my eyes, and found my thought completely caught up in the simple idea of the glory of God. The clear realization of His powerful ever-presence was mirrored in the pure and soaring musical line right then. For just a minute or two, my whole being felt filled with God’s allness.
Keeping the finger bandaged over the next few days seemed wise, and I also deferred to another pianist at church to play for our Wednesday evening service that week. But I continued to pray to know that the palpable sense of God’s glory and power I had felt earlier, even for just a brief moment, governed my whole being, precluding any accident that could suggest that God wasn’t in complete and continuous control. Within just a matter of days (what seemed a remarkable short span of time) the end of my finger rounded out perfectly and the nail grew back normally. Both index fingers, extended out side-by-side, looked exactly the same. Today it is impossible to tell which finger had been cut.
I’m so grateful for those crystalline moments when we can so clearly sense God’s all-encompassing love and presence – right where we are!
My study and practice of Christian Science have proved to me the Bible promise, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”(Psalm 46:1). I sought God’s help recently when one of my ears and my head became quite inflamed and painful. The apparent cause was the absorption into my scalp of a harmful chemical contained in an insect repellent. I prayed about the discoloration and pain, but only half-heartedly. The condition grew worse over the next few days, and the lesions that appeared on my head and neck became somewhat frightening.
I knew from my study of Christian Science, that fear was the first thing to be handled in my prayers and I studied references in the Holy Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, to arrest my fears. The Bible says:”..perfect love casteth out fear” ( I John 4:18). I also called on a Christian Science Practitioner, listed in the Christian Science Journal, for treatment through prayer.
I knew that “Truth (another name for God) removes properly whatever is offensive” (Science and Health p. 463) I pondered references from Eddy’s writings concering spiritual antidotes and alteratives, including where she writes: “Truth is an alterative in the entire system and can make it every whit whole”(Science and Health p. 371). As the fear was dispelled from my thought, foreign substances were expelled from my body, and the lesions closed and were completely healed. Soon all inflammation and unsightly discoloration was gone too.
I am very grateful for God’s great love and care for all His/Her children, and the healing power of the Christ,Truth, proved to me in this healing, and available to everyone in need. I am also grateful for the loving, prayerful support of the Christian Science practitioner, and my wife, who is also a student of Christian Science.
