Two different people I interacted with recently noticed something unusual about me, with both using the phrase,”I see you have something going on here.” Well, maybe so, but the double comment made me stop at the beginning of the week and write down in my Christian Science Quarterly next to the subject, “Unreality”, What is going on? After that I wrote, Anger or peace? Hatred or love? Frustration or patience? Material bondage or spiritual freedom? Poor material vision or clarity of sight? Imprisoned in matter or completely free in Spirit? So, I pondered these contrasts all week long, but by Saturday morning I had come to accept that for a couple of days my left hip and leg were sore from a groin pull, and that morning my right hip indicated some issue. Early that Saturday morning I was replacing flowers in the church and had a few minutes to look at the Bible Lesson. I didn’t get much farther than the Golden Text, from 1 John: “God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. ” I reasoned that means:
God is Love and there is no hatred at all.
God is Spirit and there is no matter at all.
God is Life and there is no death at all.
God is Soul and there is no ugliness at all.
God is Truth and there is no inharmony at all.
God is Principle and there is no disorder at all.
I did write and think about other qualities, but this was the gist. It was 9:00 AM before I knew it, and time to head to a tennis game I was scheduled to play in. When it was over, I realized I had not felt so much as a tweak during the match and that my legs were moving in accord with God’s quality of grace in action.
I am so very grateful to God for His goodness, not just for restored harmony of leg movement, but restored harmony of thought-movement!
