Going forward spiritually

You have resolved to go forward spiritually—to set aside more time for prayer. Perhaps you have determined to be more active in church work or to be more helpful to people in need. Or possibly you have made a commitment with yourself to complete a specific project—to gain more spiritual understanding of a particular topic through the study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. Perhaps you've determined to heal a chronic difficulty through prayer or to write an article or testimony for this magazine. But as the days come and go, you find yourself occupied in the old routines, or making little headway with your endeavor in spite of sincere efforts, or faced with some new situation that claims to stand between you and the accomplishment of your goal.

You may ask, "What's going on here? What's working against my spiritual progress?" But it would be more productive to reverse that line of questioning and ask, "What's really going on here? What's working for my spiritual progress?"
