Finding what's ours

We read in the Bible, in the book of Luke, “There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known”.

I had an experience recently when this Bible verse came clearly to thought. When reaching for my credit card to pay for some shopping, I noticed that my blue driving licence wallet was not in its usual place in my handbag. Searching the bag more thoroughly, it became apparent that my driving licence had gone missing.

Trying not to be concerned, I found myself humming Mrs. Eddy’s hymn, “Shepherd, show me how to go”. I reasoned that if “all is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation”, then Mind knows all things, and as Mind’s reflection, I know what I need to know, when I need to know it.

It seemed wise to retrace my steps and return to the shops which I visit regularly (the supermarket, post office, chemist, and so on) to check if my driving licence had been handed in. Unfortunately, this proved to be a fruitless exercise, and I returned home without the licence.

I knew I had to deal with the fear that this missing document could fall into the wrong hands, thus risking identity theft, so I quietly acknowledged that as the reflection of Principle, man is always honest and upright, and can respond only to the impulse of the one divine Mind.

At this point, I felt at peace, and was confident that the situation would be resolved harmoniously.

The following day, as I was unpacking some shopping from the car, I suddenly caught sight of something blue just peeking out from under the front passenger seat. And there, safe and sound, was the wallet containing my driving licence!

Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health, “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need”. Even in the minutiae of our human experience, divine Love has been before us, and is always at hand to heal and bless.
