Conquering my fear of variable immigration laws

Christian Science has taught me to remember the truth that God is good—only good. This teaching has really helped me to solve multiple problems in many situations. 

When I moved from India to the United States, I knew nothing of Christian Science, but my family lived across the street from a branch Church of Christ, Scientist. I wanted to enroll my daughter in a Sunday School, so we chose this church after I met with a few nice people who attended. At that time, I began studying with some of the church members the weekly Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly. Not long after this, I joined the church and started testing what I was learning from the Bible Lessons. The following is one of the demonstrations of God’s goodness in my life.

One day after work, I found that my work permit card had expired. A new card should have been sent, so I went to the Post Office to see why I had not yet received it; they had no knowledge of my new card. While checking its status online, I was shocked to learn that if I did not receive this card in the next eight months, the processing of my permanent work authorization would be stopped. Because we had moved to a different apartment around the time the new card should have come, I updated our address with the immigration service. I also checked some blogs and found that other people had never received a new card and they could not find help either. During this time, I felt totally hopeless, with a great fear about my uncertain future.
