Unemployment problems resolved

Original in French

In 1993 the information industry in the United States took a plunge. In the part of the country where I live, companies started to lay off employees because of a drop in orders and clients. I was laid off by the computer company where I had been working for ten years. Like thousands of other people, I found myself jobless.

My first reaction? I went to the public library to research the names of information companies in the region and then sent my résumé to about 100 of them. After two months with no success, I started to rethink my situation. I knew that the steps I had taken were good, but they had resulted in nothing. So I had to approach the job search in a different way.

This time, I sat in my home office, and I prayed. I asked God to guide me, to show me what I should do. I prayed to feel His presence and support. I found a lot of inspiration from reading Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I began to realize there were a lot of things I already had, and I was really grateful for them. Then I made a list of all the times I could remember that I'd been able to find solutions through prayer: I had been healed of illnesses, I had resolved relationship problems—well, it was a long list.
