From desperation to joy

It’s amazing how a change of thought alone can change one’s circumstances.  I was helping a friend last week who was having a pounding bad headache all day and had missed work because of it. He couldn’t stop talking about the pain.  We decided right there and then to turn out thoughts away from the pain and consider what God had to say about his head.  Together, we reasoned that since divine Love [God] had made him in Love’s image and likeness and that God declared all that he had made to be good (Genesis 1), then my friend could claim all of that inherent goodness right now. His true state of health was based on God as Spirit and Good.  His well being is dependent on God, not a material head. We were both so inspired at that moment, and the headache immediately left. My friend enjoyed the rest of his evening filled with family activities.  What changed?  It was thought alone – gaining a better understanding of his natural and permanent spiritual qualities healed him.
