Listen, follow, and rejoice!

One Sunday morning as I dressed for church, I realized that a favorite heirloom diamond ring, a precious gift from my mother, was missing from my hand. I had run numerous errands in the past several days and could not remember when I had last seen the ring on my finger. I had no idea where I could have dropped it. Was it in the house, in the car, or somewhere else? Panic set in as I frantically searched around the house in vain. It became obvious to me that prayer was my only option. 

At times like this, I have found it helpful to recall “ ‘Feed My Sheep,’ ” a poem by Mary Baker Eddy (Christian Science Hymnal, No. 304). It includes the lines “I will listen for Thy voice, / Lest my footsteps stray; / I will follow and rejoice / All the rugged way.”
