Trust God more—a goal for the new year

Making New Year’s resolutions was an important way for me to monitor my progress in early adulthood. Many of my resolutions reflected a deep desire to achieve specific career goals, so I’d identify exactly what I wanted to achieve within a given time frame and then work diligently toward the desired outcome. This approach worked well for me, and it helped me stay focused and organized.

After I became a student of Christian Science, my concept of how to monitor progress shifted. My life became less about working within a tight yearly time frame to achieve specific goals, and more about actively thinking of God as infinitely good, as the divine Principle that is always present to govern and direct the details of my life.
