The reflecting business

Do you feel vulnerable to the possibility of unemployment? Have you been looking for satisfying work without success? I once answered affirmatively to both these questions. After months of mailing resumes, hesitating at the doors of interviewers, and pleading with God to send me work, I was disgusted with the whole employment process. I asked myself, "Why am I failing to find work?" Through prayer I discovered I was failing precisely because I was looking for work—that is, because I believed I lacked it.

The belief that I lacked what I needed blinded me to the truth of God's eternal supply and care. I had to learn that in reality we are eternally employed in the business of reflecting God, and that this business supplies all our needs.
