God’s abundant love meets our needs

I’d made quite a project of searching for a more affordable home.

For several years before I retired, I wondered how I would be able to afford a home once I stopped working. I was already beyond the usual retirement age, and when I calculated the income I would have after retiring, it appeared that it would be insufficient to pay the monthly mortgage on my condo—and would definitely not support both the mortgage and buying groceries! 

With the help of real estate agents, I’d made quite a project of searching for a more affordable home. I knew the type of house I wanted and the location, but nothing was working out. And because an economic downturn had affected the value of my condo, I couldn’t sell it for enough to pay off what I owed. 

So I stayed in my job (which, fortunately, I liked), and from time to time would ask God to show me the answer to this dilemma. After decades of studying Christian Science and relying on it for physical healing and solutions to problems of all sorts, I had plenty of proof that God does meet our needs. However, I continued to stew about my situation and struggle to find a solution through my own efforts.
