What does it mean to lean on God?
Q: I’m really overwhelmed with schoolwork, extracurriculars, and everything I have to do for high school. When I told my Sunday School teacher about it all, she said I could “lean on God” to help me. But how do I do that?
A: A couple of years ago I was asked to fill in last minute for a role in a professional theater company. I had a week to learn the part. Because there were only eight of us in the cast, I would be onstage performing for a large portion of the show.
It seemed impossible to learn all of the choreography, lines, and music before opening night. But instead of allowing myself to feel afraid and overwhelmed, I turned to what I knew about God. In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures Mary Baker Eddy writes, “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings” (p. vii).
