In Psalms we read, "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits." The benefits to me have been overwhelming these past four years, and it is with a heart filled with gratitude that I submit this testimony.

Grateful thinking opens consciousness to the fact that God, good, is ever present; it is acknowledging the presence of good, the active recognition of God's presence and power. Gratitude enables us to prove the divine law of good. It multiplies our blessings. Mary Baker Eddy asks in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: "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."

I am a dressmaker. Over three years ago, my work seemed to nearly stop, and I became very distressed about finances. I spent several nights not sleeping, wondering what to do. I constantly turned to God and prayed about the subject of supply. I knew God is always the source of all that is real and good. Money, no matter what its source, is simply a symbol of God's provision for His children. I prayed to understand that God had no opposite to Himself, called matter, mortal mind, or evil, which could withhold good from me. The supply God has to give is spiritual substance, which is true goodness. This goodness comes to man in the form of ideas, including honesty, wisdom, morality, purity, and love.
