Lost? Not Really!
People talk about things that they've lost, but I've learned through Christian Science that things can't really be lost in God's perfect world. This spiritual kingdom of God is where we always live, because it's all there is.
Because God is Mind, and we reflect that perfect Mind, we can't believe in loss. I learned this when I seemed to lose a valuable Swiss Army knife, an award given to me for being "Cub Scout of the Year." I prayed hard, trying to know that nothing could be lost in God's world. But after a while I sort of gave up and stopped praying. From time to time I would think about the knife and would pray for its return, but only halfheartedly.
About a year later I heard my mom talking to my grandmother about finding a lost sweater and how she prayed. That refreshed my memory of the Army knife, and that night I prayed to see clearly that we have one perfect Mind, which we reflect, and so we know all we need to know.
