Take Time to Be Grateful

Gratitude is essential to healing in Christian Science. Increasing the proportion of our time spent in grateful thought does much to give us dominion over time and to eliminate delay in the healing process, as well as to overcome the seeming effects of time as an element affecting the health of the body.

When Christ Jesus went to the grave of Lazarus he asked that the stone be taken away, but Martha, Lazarus' sister, protested that four days' time would have done its work on the body. When the stone was taken away, "Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me" (John 11:14). And he called Lazarus forth from the grave. The claim of time had been completely nullified.
