“I needed to get up and work.”

I had a weather healing I wanted to share:

On the morning of Springtime Tallahassee, (an annual event with a fair, a parade and a race) I was awakened early by lightning and thunder.  I sleepily declared that God governed the weather.  After continued lightening and thunder it became apparent to me that I needed to get up and work.  I started by reading the Bible Lesson and continuing to recognize God as governing the weather.

After a while it started to rain, and I decided to drive to my mother’s house.  On my way, I passed runners jogging in the race yet the rain persisted.  When I arrived at my mom’s we checked the weather, and the Springtime Tallahassee’s website.  It was expected to rain all day but we found they planned to go forward with the festivities.  A half-hour before the parade, we took our raincoats and started walking downtown.  By the time the parade started the rain had completely dissipated and the sun was shining.  It turned into a beautiful day of God’s governing.

This clearly exemplifies God’s omnipotence and omnipresence. I am very grateful for this experience and for the 2014 Association assignment.  On a recent Wednesday, I found myself standing at the testimony meeting and sharing the wonderful inspiration I found from the assignment.  A favorite of mine would definitely be the healing of Calvin Frye.  Another point I thought especially prominent was on page 424 of We Knew Mary Baker Eddy, vol. II. and how we can “break the claim of evil” by recognizing that any challenges we are faced with “has done you good.”   This concurs with another statement that “mental malpractice cannot harm you” (S&H 442:30) and disarms the barbed arrow that would wound our “brother birds.” (Hymn 30)
