A real find
It used to be that whenever I lost something and couldn't find it after a cursory search, I would replace it if I could afford to, or go without as a kind of punishment for my carelessness. I accepted loss as inevitable.
But when I became a student of Christian Science—a student of the divine laws that produce harmony—I knew that when I thought I'd "lost" something, what I really needed to find was more about God and my relation to Him. I needed to look deeper, beyond the physical picture, into the nature of good and its source.
All the good we have is really spiritual in nature. God, Spirit, is the creator, the source, of all good. So no good can ever be lost. While material things can be misplaced, diminished, or taken from us, the good God gives us cannot. He is always with us, so His good is always with us. And because divine Love meets human needs, we will always have the good we need, in a form that is best for us. Our basis for believing this is found in the Bible: "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning" (James 1:17).
