A GREAT RETURN
One day after school (I attend boarding school), I went to my CD case to listen to a new CD I had just bought. To my surprise, it was missing. I was pretty sure that someone had stolen it. That really disturbed me because the CD was brand new and I loved listening to the music on it.
When I called my parents, I mentioned the incident to them. They totally turned my thought around to what was true—that I could not lose or misplace something I'd worked hard for, because God loved me and He wouldn't let that happen. I deserved to have this CD because I had put my love into it by babysitting months before, and I'd saved up my money to buy it. The CD was meant to come back to me. I knew that God's children, which included the girls on my floor, don't steal and aren't dishonest. But at the time, it was a struggle to believe this.
So, I decided I would listen to God every morning for what to do next. The idea came to me to post a few notices up in the girls' dormitory, and mention the CD was missing. Instead of blaming an individual or making the girls in the dorm feel bad, I went to Science and Health for some inspiration.
