WANTED: patience and humility

Last year, I was faced with a daunting employment challenge. I had just moved to New York City following a two-year period of independent travel and part-time employment, which began after my college graduation. I found a great apartment in the East Village, and was excited about the prospect of following up on some appealing job leads and beginning my career. While the economy seemed to be gaining traction, people commented on the slow job market recovery and kept saying how difficult it must be to job hunt.

As my search continued, I decided to take a couple of weeks off for Christian Science Primary class instruction, a course dedicated to the study of the Bible, and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Following the class, I realized that although I was taking the right human footsteps to find employment, I needed to make sure I left God in charge of the process and listened to Him for guidance.
