There's a solution for everything

When I was in high school, my friends sometimes accused me of being starry-eyed about life. “You'll see that life is full of tragic events that simply have to be endured,” they warned. I didn't want to see the world through rose-colored glasses. But I was somehow convinced that there was a solution to every problem, and that life wasn't just a matter of fate.

I found confirmation for this at 17. That was when I came across the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. In its pages I learned about God's law of love, and that He has the answers to our problems. He always gives us a good solution. But it may be a solution that is entirely different from the one we would have planned for ourselves.

In the Bible it says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isa. 55:8, 9).
