God's light guided us through downsizing

Imagine you're standing outside of the place you live or work and a dense fog rolls in. Soon all you see is fog, and everything else is gone. If for some reason you actually believed in this illusion, you might feel a deep sense of loss and fear. As soon as the fog is recognized as the mist it is, however, the fear and suffering disappear. You see the illusion for what it is—nothing!

When things appear to fall apart in our lives, we are experiencing something like the illusion of the fog. Let me tell you how I learned this. My husband's job was being phased out, and there was no possibility of staying with his corporation. For almost a year, this situation hung over us like a dense fog. It clouded our future. It obscured our sense of security and well-being. Our supply seemed limited and soon to be eliminated. The resulting worry, doubt, and fear all appeared very real.

Through Christian Science, our thoughts were lifted above this "fog." We saw clearly that supply was not tied to a paycheck but had its source in God, unlimited good.
