Nothing is lost to all-knowing Mind
My family and I have had many proofs of God’s loving care for His children, including healings of migraine headaches, flu, and a skin growth. We have learned that we can turn to God in any circumstance and receive divine help. I am particularly grateful for God’s guidance in recovering a lost item last summer.
After my daughter and I had enjoyed a beautiful swim in the ocean, we came back from the beach with our chairs and umbrellas in tow. It was then that my daughter realized she didn’t have her earrings. She had left them on her dress before swimming, and they had landed in the sand when she put her dress on. She was sad because these were her favorite earrings that she wore with everything.
I immediately began praying. In the Glossary of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy defines God as “The great I AM; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence” (p. 587). I reasoned that if God is Mind and is the Father of all, man must be the expression of that Mind and can see as the Father sees. Nothing can truly be lost, because Mind’s creation consists of spiritual ideas, and infinite Mind knows where its ideas are; they are never outside of Mind.
