Employment found through God’s guidance
Years ago I found myself out of work for the first time. I was a freelance photographer, and all my usual job avenues had dried up. I still had a few small jobs here and there that provided enough to pay my rent and bills, but there wasn’t much left over. I considered going on welfare payments, but felt it best to first pray about my next step.
I called a Christian Science practitioner to pray with me, and she reminded me that God is always our true employer and that all our needs are met by divine Love. I knew our God-given talents could never be useless. Under God’s law of harmony, demand is always met by supply and vice versa. Shortly after this, the idea came to me that perhaps I could use my photographic skills in a slightly different way—I could work for a magazine or newspaper as a photo editor. This new job prospect excited me. I looked forward to learning new skills and putting my existing knowledge of photography to good use. The challenge was how to get into a popular industry with no formal experience, no contacts, and no job offers.
