God takes us all the way

After graduating from college, I felt it was time to go through Christian Science class instruction. I’d just moved to a new town with only three hundred dollars in my wallet, and I was struggling to keep afloat. I prayed with a Christian Science practitioner for employment, purpose, and all-around progress in my life, and as he was also a teacher, I began asking him questions about class instruction. His lucid answers and especially the peace and comfort I felt while talking to him on the phone gave me assurance that this was whom I wanted to take instruction from. I was soon accepted into his class, and the next couple of months provided me with plenty of mental prepa­ration while he and I prayed through all of the details that needed sorting out in order for me to take this next big step of progress in my life.

Soon, I got a job offer. Though I was very grateful for the employment, my request to take two weeks off for an upcoming “religious class” was denied. I continued to pray with the practi­tioner about this, and the idea came to ask again. This time I explained to my boss how the class was a “once in a lifetime” opportunity and was even more important to me than keeping my job. I knew it would provide me with the tools to prayerfully handle every kind of problem that would come up in life. He ended up agreeing to let me go. I was so grateful, and I began to have more trust in the Bible’s promise: “All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
