Lost and found

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

I was looking forward to a long-overdue two-week vacation first seeing my dad on Long Island, New York, and then traveling north to enjoy some swimming and sun.

Long Island has beautiful seaport villages, and on my first morning, I strolled down Main Street, eager to savor the simplicity of small-town life. I sat on the dock, soaking up the sun and thanking God for this wonderful opportunity. But a few hours later I suddenly noticed my wallet was missing. In a panic I retraced my steps. No wallet. It had contained all of my vacation money, my driver’s license, and several credit cards.

In tears, I called a Christian Science practitioner back in Seattle (he graciously agreed to pray for me, even though it was still quite early where he was!). We spoke about the idea of spiritual supply, and he reassured me that I would always have what I needed right when I needed it.
