Finding next steps in my career

From the October 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I had been struggling for a while. I’d set my sights on a career in marine biology, but after I graduated from college, finding paid work in my desired field was a challenge. Along with running into more competition for paying jobs than I expected, it became clear that I might need more education as well.

After hitting many dead ends along the way, in the midst of panic, I had a conversation with my mom. She talked to me about how God takes us all the way. She assured me that I hadn’t been led to fulfill my desire to be a marine biologist, guided through four years of schooling, and then abandoned. In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy writes: “ ‘God is Love.’ More than this we cannot ask, higher we cannot look, farther we cannot go” (p. 6). I reasoned that if God is Love and caring for all Her children, then there was no way I couldn’t be where I needed to be, exactly when I needed to be there.

My needs were always taken care of, even if it wasn’t how I thought they’d be met.
