Are we really grateful for the good already received?

7. 3
Are we really grateful for the good already received? Then we shall avail ourselves of the blessings we have, and thus be fitted to receive more. Gratitude is much more than a verbal expression of thanks. Action expresses more gratitude than speech.

Each week there is a lot to read and to do for the church, and this passage made me realize that perhaps sometimes a change occurs in my life through Christian Science, and I am grateful for it at the time, but the business of successive weeks makes me forget to be grateful for the good I have received.

Looking back through my testimonies of the past few years, I found a lot of healing. Here are just a few examples (listing them all would take me all day!):

June 4th, 2015 - Brought to Plainfield, and healed of the desire to commit suicide.
March 26th, 2014 - Healed of the need to read and research constantly.
June 4th, 2014 - Healed of my misconceptions of Christian Science.
July 22nd, 2014 - Healed of feeling I didn't deserve love.
September 3rd, 2014 - Healed of never feeling I had a home.
October 15th, 2014 - Healed of feeling worthless, and the need to sabotage myself.
March 19th, 2015 - Healed of need to play music constantly, and instead listen for God's voice.
May 13th, 2015 - Healed of feeling that I wasn't a divine idea.
August 5th,2015 - Healed of feeling my home was anywhere but in God.
August 19th, 2015 - Healed of feeling I was an accident.

Christian Science—as I am learning in Plainfield—has brought so much healing to my life. I am so grateful to God, the lesson writers, and my practitioner for each wonderful healing. What a blessing it is to be here!

Thank you!
