Have you ever felt like your needs aren’t being met? Maybe a friend or partner is not acting up to your expectations, or an employer is overlooking your talents? If so, it’s a ripe opportunity to see how God is meeting your needs.
In Christian Science, one learns that man is not needy. God’s children are fully supplied by divine Love with everything essential to live happy, healthy and progressive lives.
The temptation to feel needy often comes when we look to another person or situation in the material world for our goodness, and don’t find it. The feeling of neediness is not being produced by the person we look to, or by our employer. It is the effect of looking somewhere other than God for only what God can deliver. The cure is to look to God instead for the goodness we seek!
If feeling like your spouse isn’t “meeting your needs,” go to God first and discover how Love can bring more understanding and thoughtfulness into your marriage and create common ground on which you and your spouse can discuss any important issue and reach a mutual agreement.
If feeling like a current employer isn’t “meeting your needs,” go to God first and understand better what God’s plan is for your career. See how everything you need to prosper comes from God and is not held back or constrained by your employer. Bring this expanded understanding of Love’s provision to your workplace and see what unfolds as a result. Experience may improve where you are, or you may end up somewhere else. Divine Love will keep you moving down a progressive path.
With God, you have everything you need to demonstrate a happy, satisfying and rich experience. With God, there are no limits! With God, there is no lack. Your needs have been met.
