God doesn't withhold good

When we feel we lack something, are threatened by limited resources, sometimes human reasoning has us phrasing and rephrasing familiar questions. For instance, How did I get in this mess? Can I really expect to find appropriate work? How can I impress this employer? When will the economy recover? Perhaps we sense that endless analysis of our situation isn’t very productive, but there doesn’t seem to be a practical alternative.  

Christian Science encourages us to back off unneeded repetitive questioning and give thorough attention to biblical answers. Scripture reveals a God who generously provides for His creation, a God who is pure love itself and cannot neglect His children. We read:

•  “God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in
all things, may abound to every good work” (II Corinthians 9:8).
