From the January 1960 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Everyone at some time looks for a place: a place to live, a place to work, or a place of rest and peace. Some seemingly knotty problems often arise in this search, as when a change of employment or environment seems necessary.

Mortal man's thinking habits, allied as they are with material beliefs, lead to confusion, as every Christian Scientist knows. Mortal belief outlines the problem, with all its attendant detail, in order to prove the need of a place or of a change of place and then attempts to prescribe the answer. How much better it would be to turn to God, the divine, governing Principle of man, for His sure direction.

In Proverbs (3:6) we find this helpful assurance: "In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." When we seek God's guidance with the sincere desire to be in full obedience thereto and with the understanding that God supplies all good, then nothing can prevent our receiving that which best meets the human need.
