You are always relevant

If you've been feeling irrelevant, not as necessary to your employer, customers, or family as before, uncertain of your place in the world, you have a wonderful opportunity to learn more of your God-bestowed purpose and to see it brought out in your life. Through Christian Science you'll begin to realize the tenderness of God's love and feel the assurance of His care for all that concerns you.

Acknowledging God as our Father, our source and originator, we become receptive to an inflow of spiritual truths, healing ideas from Him, which drive out negative concepts such as purposelessness, lack of individuality. Reasoning from the standpoint of God as our creator, the all-knowing Mind and all-governing Principle, we soon perceive that He didn't create us haphazardly but for a purpose. He knows what that purpose is, and He has fully equipped us with all we need to continually carry it out. So we are always relevant—that is, always necessary to God and ideally suited to His reason for creating us. We can't be separated from being relevant any more than we can be separated from being. A career supported by this understanding cannot stagnate; noble ideals cannot be thwarted; our ability to be a transparency for good cannot be suppressed. All of these can only expand and develop as we affirm the spiritual fact of our importance to God.

Christ Jesus described man's unique value as God's child: "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."Matt. 10:29-31; "The very hairs of your head are all numbered." All the minutiae of your being are known to divine Spirit. Right now you count! Your relevancy is inherent in your being. The need for you—your own special purpose—is being proclaimed by God continuously.
