Overwhelmed? Prayer can help.

I wanted to do a good job on everything, but a few weeks into the school year it became apparent that I couldn’t do it all on my own. My thesis research wasn’t coming together; my coursework was quickly piling up; and I felt pressure to do all of my extracurricular work perfectly.
Whoa. OK, press the pause button. Something needed to change, and that began with the way I was thinking about all these projects and responsibilities. In the past, I’d found that getting a more God-based perspective always helped, so I turned to the weekly Bible Lesson found in the Christian Science Quarterly, which is made up of passages from the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

But despite my best attempts to remain a source of positivity and inspiration, after the first day my confidence started to fade, and I was also beginning to feel anxious.

As she looked out the window, my friend saw a path leading deep into the dark woods. It called out to her. It seemed to say, “Take this path; then you’ll see your friend again.” She had recently lost someone very dear to her, and this path into the woods was tempting because it seemed to offer a solution. If she died, too, she could be with her friend again. “I saw that I could make a choice,” my friend told me. “I chose not to go down that path. I realized I wanted to live.”
