Healed of back injury

A few years back, we visited a fruit orchard and while we were returning home from a picnic with family and friends, I suddenly slipped on the gravel path and fell with a thump, on my back. My husband came to my rescue, and we immediately declared truths together. With great difficulty, I was able to get up and walk to the car. While driving all the way home, we were declaring the Scientific Statement of Being, as found in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy on page 468.It reads, " There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual. "

I also remembered a statement from the same book, about not paying a penalty, for something that has not happened in God's kingdom. It reads, “We should relieve our minds from the depressing thought that we have transgressed a material law and must of necessity pay the penalty. Let us reassure ourselves with the law of Love. God never punishes man for doing right, for honest labor, or for deeds of kindness, though they expose him to fatigue, cold, heat, contagion. If man seems to incur the penalty through matter, this is but a belief of mortal mind, not an enactment of wisdom, and man has only to enter his protest against this belief in order to annul it. Through this action of thought and its results upon the body, the student will prove to himself, by small beginnings, the grand verities of Christian Science.” [S&H384:3-15]

I am very grateful to God for this healing, though it took a lot of praying and listening, I felt His presence every moment, destroying all sense of mortality or penalty. I was completely healed.
