"Rest in the deep assurance of My unfailing Love. Let your body, mind, and spirit relax in My Presence. (Your) best response to this glorious gift is a life steeped in thankfulness." (347)
Being thankful can certainly change our perspective. In my recovery from foot surgery, I've been amazed at the series of little miracles our bodies go through to repair. There have been times I'd be concerned, because of some new sensation or change in appearance and would become a bit anxious about it. However, once I learned that it was just another developmental step in the healing process, I would view that change as something to welcome rather than worry about.
Being thankful changes perspective and produces a restful, healing option for life!
