What is going on?

A Christian Scientist, unemployed, became disturbed about his future. Repeated attempts to find work had met with repeated rebuffs. Discouraged, not knowing where to turn, he started to feel like a shipwrecked sea traveler alone on an island. He started praying along the line of his childhood prayers, "God help me!" Then, while he felt this was a sincere prayer, he realized it was not fully the kind of understanding prayer he had learned about since becoming interested in Christian Science. There was a different, a healing way to look at his problem.

"What is really going on?" the Scientist had asked himself in bewilderment. Out there, he had thought, is a world with many people who have no interest in helping others—a world where one can get lost in the daily shuffle. But now the inspiration and reason he gained through scientific prayer showed him that he lived in a spiritual universe, the universe of which Jesus said: "In my Father's house are many mansions. ... I go to prepare a place for you."John 14:2; The way paved by our Master and illuminated by Mrs. Eddy shows that we each have our individual, divinely appointed place and way of giving.
