Overcoming obstacles in a new business

Spiritual answers are what make the difference—in business as well as in other aspects of our lives.

About three years ago I became a partner in a new business. It has grown steadily since and provides a useful service. But we have had plenty of challenges to meet in making it successful.

The study of Christian Science has been invaluable to me in addressing some of the knotty difficulties we have encountered. In praying to overcome the obstacles we've faced, I've found that relying on God's design for man and yielding to the divine will are far more powerful than any unenlightened human efforts. I've learned not to trust the push of my own will but to be willing to listen and to watch—to see God's control of events—in order to make progress. By seeking God's guidance prayerfully and then following my best understanding of what is right, I have been able to resolve problems that human will would have beat against fruitlessly.
