Stability during the housing crisis

The housing and foreclosure crisis has had a great impact on individuals and families in the United States and other countries. Among the concerns are questions like these: Will prices on homes fall further? Will we be able to sell our home? Will we qualify for a new mortgage loan? Is my job stable enough to take on a long-term financial commitment? Some are even asking, “Should we lower our expectations and recognize that there’s not enough to go around for everyone?” Each of these questions points to a yearning for financial stability and an economic model that works for them.

So is there a model that is reliable—one that offers stability over time and circumstances? I’ve found there is. My study of Christian Science has proved that looking to God as the constant source of supply in one’s life can help guide anyone—even while navigating this economic crisis.

At the heart of Christian Science is each individual’s opportunity to see that we are children of God, made in His image and likeness. Since God has infinite resources, His children have infinite resources available, too. Since God is divine Mind, we as His children can express wisdom in financial decisions as we rely on the all-knowing Mind. Reasoning this way removes the darkness and doubt that we’re adrift on our own without help or hope.
