No problem too small . . . or too big
The “real world” and its problems seemed very different than what I’d learned in Christian Science Sunday School, and I wasn’t sure I was up to dealing with them.
“God is Love” were the three words in big letters on the front wall of the Sunday School I’d attended since I was little. As I grew up, this great fact came to mean more and more to me, and I loved thinking about Love as unceasing, unchanging, and unconditional. But when I went out into the “cold, cruel world” as a young adult, it was hard to see the allness, everywhereness, onlyness, and goodness of God—let alone prove it.
In fact, looking back on my early adulthood, I’d have to call myself a “Goldilocks” Christian Scientist. Though I wanted to experience God’s healing power, I felt I was waiting for a problem that was “just right” to come along before tackling it with prayer. But every problem seemed either too small to bother with, or too big for me to deal with. If God hadn’t awakened me, I’d still be waiting. But thankfully, He did wake me up!
