Employment found; burned hand healed

In 1991, I was laid off from my job because of poor economic conditions. There was no severance pay, and while I had intermittent opportunities to earn extra money, I needed to use much of my savings. I had been praying with a Christian Science practitioner to understand better that employment in its highest, spiritual sense was already present. I was often reminded that God is man's creator and provider.

In my own thought I needed to deal with fear, doubt, lack of time, high unemployment statistics, and being labeled as unemployed. Months of deepening my study of Christian Science clarified for me the fact that, as the active expression of God, I was never unemployed nor could I ever be. True employment is expressing God, and that spiritual fact could never be overshadowed by a human workplace. I learned that because God is the only employer, there are not many minds involved in the employment process.
