A foundation of trust

Many years ago, I became increasingly dissatisfied with my job. I was the sole breadwinner for my household and prayed to overcome the fear that if I left my job, my family could be adversely affected. I did have other part-time jobs to help make ends meet, but that wasn’t enough income to support my family.

I looked to the many citations in the Bible on the subject and held tightly to Isaiah 41:10: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” I prayed for many weeks about what my next steps would be. I knew that God loved everyone involved including my family, my employer, and me. I also found special comfort and encouragement in a quote from Unity of Good by Mary Baker Eddy: “… God is our helper. He pities us. He has mercy upon us, and guides every event of our careers” (pp. 3–4).
