About two years ago, several factors arose in my business that pointed to the need for a new look at what the future held in store. The possibility of a change in employment was considered. I gave a great deal of thought to testimonies related by Christian Scientists about their handling of similar situations. From them I learned the importance of praying, "Not my will, but thine, be done" (Luke 22:42).

It became my firm conviction that by applying the Christ, Truth, to this unfoldment, I too would be led to do the right thing at the right time, all under God's direction and in accord with His infinite plan. Then when the moment came for a decision, I would know that the time had come and how to decide so clearly that nothing could be clearer.

Mrs. Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 104), "In obedience to the divine nature, man's individuality reflects the divine law and order of being." I knew that if I acknowledged God's law of perfect reflection, all my questions on what to do would he answered. I felt very strongly that my responsibility was to know that God's being is also the being of man, His reflection; that God directs His divine creation, including man; and that these truths are true constantly. In the book of Psalms we read (31:1, 3): "In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust. ...For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me."
