GRATITUDE FOR HEALING

Above five years ago I began a new job in a law firm. I was hired to replace someone who was planning to leave the firm in a few weeks, and I was to assume her responsibilities after her departure. Well, months went by and she had not left. I felt I was constantly under this individual's scrutiny, and that she was unfairly criticizing my work and had no plans to leave.

Seeking a solution to this situation, I told my story to a Christian Science practitioner. She reminded me that I would not be "replacing" this individual, but simply expressing my own special talents at the firm. I had my own unique niche to fill, just as she did. Mary Baker Eddy wrote, "Each individual must fill his own niche in time and eternity" (Retrospection and Introspection, p. 70). I prayed to establish in my thought the fact that I worked for God alone, and that my true purpose was to glorify Him and see His plan for me established practically.
