Instantaneous healing of a deep gash

A while ago I had the opportunity to prove once again the immediacy of Christian Science healing – when the principles taught by our Master, Christ Jesus, and explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy – are put into practice.

I was in my wood shop trying to finish an order so that I could ship it to the customer. I was already a couple of days behind so I thought I had better work faster than normal. The first seeming mistake I made was to work in the shop in a pair of shorts. The next seeming mistake was to be in a hurry at the band saw. Normally I would pull the scrap wood away from the saw and throw it in a barrel that stands nearby. That day I decided it would be quicker to pull the wood off the table and let it fall to the floor.

I had been working for a while when a rather large piece fell off the table and I felt it hit my leg. At first I didn’t pay any attention to it because it never really hurt. As I worked for a few more minutes it felt like warm water was running down my leg. It was at that point I looked at the leg for the first time. I saw a pretty deep gash several inches long in the leg and it was bleeding quite a bit. My first thought was to condemn myself for being in a rush and not working as carefully as I should. How stupid could I be?! I immediately reversed that false, mortal suggestion, as we are taught to do in Christian Science. I reasoned that I could not be “stupid” because I was God’s beloved son who was made in His likeness. At that point – as I was looking at the material evidence – I spoke aloud to the erroneous belief of accident. I said, “If you are trying to impress me or frighten me you had better do more than this. I’m not impressed by your claim of injury.”

At this point I turned off the saw and continued to deal with the situation with specific Christian Science prayer, as I have been doing all my life. I did take a rag and wipe the majority of blood off, and then I began to pray. I remembered what Mrs. Eddy tells us in Science and Health (page 411:10–12), “If Spirit or the power of divine Love bear witness to the truth, this is the ultimatum, the scientific way, and the healing is instantaneous.” I also remembered the story in the fifth chapter of the Gospel of John where Jesus had met a man at the pool of Bethesda who had been an invalid for 38 years. He had been waiting for the “troubling of the water,” thinking that, – if he could only be the first to step into the water when it was troubled – it would bring the healing he was looking for. The Master simply said to him, “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.” The man was healed instantaneously.

I reasoned that if Jesus could heal a man who had been sick for 38 years instantly, healing this situation that took place only a few minutes earlier should be easy. As Mrs. Eddy said, “If Spirit or the power of divine Love bear witness to the truth…..the healing is instantaneous.” I began to know that the truth of the situation was that I was not “stupid” but rather the loved, intelligent child of God, and that I did not have to pay a penalty for any supposed mistake. I knew that nothing on my physical body could suggest that I was anything less than God’s son. I prayed along these lines for a couple of minutes. I knew the healing was complete because my thought had changed from “you stupid mortal” to knowing that I am the blessed, intelligent child of God who experiences no blemish or injury whatsoever. I stood in awe as I watched that gash close as if you were zipping up your jacket! I thanked God and rejoiced in the healing I had just witnessed. This all took place within 15 minutes. I saw proof the healing was complete when I took my shower a couple of hours later and couldn't tell which leg had been involved.

Not only am I extremely grateful for this healing but for the fact that Christian Science has been my chosen health care for my entire life. Not all of my healings have been as instantaneous as this one, but each time I have needed healing it has always come. I have found that any situation that tries to convince me that I am a vulnerable mortal can be corrected by applying the Science of the Christ. Physical, financial, emotional, relationships, even world problems, – it makes no difference in what form the challenges appear – they can all be healed by the application of Christian Science.
