The most important job

Often when I drive, I use the time spent in solitude to practice Christian Science. I apply specific spiritual truths to whatever situations come to mind— usually world events or significant issues of the day.

One morning as I drove to work, however, I found myself considering developments related to my job. I had applied for a position within my company. And I had been feeling troubled by the delays that had kept a decision from being made. I had had opportunities to take positions elsewhere; yet each time I'd felt directed by God to stay patiently where I was until the decision regarding this particular position was made. But now that the decision point finally approached, it seemed that management was seriously considering an outside candidate rather than any of the individuals already working in the department.
