Lost shipment found

I am working with understanding God as incorporeal, Spirit filling all space.  Also the standard of perfection being God and man.  I work in a paint company and work all the time with the concept of a standard.  We have to make the color requested to meet a high standard and there is a specific formula to get to that standard.  The unity of God and man manifests the standard of perfection.

I am so grateful to see a glimpse of the Christ in my friend when we were having a problem locating a community theatre we were trying to get to and she said to continue down the road in the opposite direction we were being led in and it got us to the right place.  Also, I just heard from a trucking company that they located our freight that they had lost, and they were able to ship it to our customer. I was very grateful because we didn't have the product in stock to replace it. We would have had to airfreight the product, and this is for an exterior construction project, and they were trying to get the project done before it got too cold.

God is speaking to everyone

Where I work I have kind of designated myself as a PR person to our customers. Because they might have to wait for their order to be filled it seems only appropriate to engage in conversation and make them a little more comfortable.
One day last week a man came in and we began to talk about military service. He said he had been a paratrooper and wanted to tell me how he knew there was a God. Well, that intrigued me immediately! He told me how dangerous it could be and how when you jump out of a plane you could be blown back into the plane--or jump and start spinning and go straight down. Or get tangled or have a chute that's not opening. To be honest I had never thought about parachuting. So he said that on one particular occasion he jumped and got tangled in the cords and found himself upside down and could not extract himself. But then he said that a voice told him, "Remember when you were younger and played in the big tree and were upside down and did certain maneuvers to climb back up? Do that!" Then he said, "So I did pull up the way the voice said, and I was uprighted, untangled and able to pull the cord and land safely." I said, "Why, you heard an angel message." He said, "I know it. There is a God and He saved me." And with that, he went beaming out the door!

A lesson in listening for divine direction

I stopped at the store before going to a client’s house.  I placed my phone in my work bag as I was getting out of the car.  I locked my car with the key and put the key in my pocket.  I went to the bathroom, picked up the vegetables I needed, and checked out. On my way out of the store, I looked for my keys to get ready to unlock the car. I searched my uniform pockets and my outer coat pockets. I took everything out of my purse. I went outside to the car to see if I had missed getting them into my pocket, but still, no keys. I started to pray that God knows where the keys are, and if I would be calm, divine Mind would let me know where they were.
I asked salespeople if any keys had been turned in, and I retraced my steps from the bathroom to the produce area. While I was checking the bathroom stalls, the thought came that I should use the bathroom while I was there. But I thought instead I should call a locksmith and call my office to tell them I was locked out of my car. I knew I would have to wait for the locksmith to come, and I was very worried that even if the locksmith opened the door, without keys I would not be able to drive. I was in a town an hour away from home. Who could drive me to my client’s home? I needed to protect the privacy of my client.
With the salesperson's help, phone, and phone book, I was able to get a locksmith and to leave a message for my office. I did one more round of my route, pockets, and purse. I found myself in the bathroom yet again. The thought was I really should use the bathroom while I was waiting. As I sat down, I found my keys. I forgot that I had worn a uniform jacket under my overcoat, and the pockets had gotten pushed back to the sides, out of my reach. But if I had stopped to listen to that small voice while I searched the bathroom earlier, I would have quickly found the keys. With no calls to the locksmith or office, I would have been on time to work. I was grateful for the extra blessings, though. There was no service charge, the staff was very understanding, and I was able to make a full shift for my client.

Worrying averted through prayer during search for lost purse

Worrying averted through prayer during search for lost purse

I was shopping recently, and after going to several stores had to drive for another half hour to get to the final store.  When I started to get out of the car I realized that I didn’t have my purse with me.  My sister was driving, and we drove all the way back to the last store to get my purse.  However, they didn’t have it.  It had not been turned in.  I then went to the other stores where we had previously shopped, and it wasn’t at those places either.
I went home and began praying, with the thought that nothing is ever lost in God’s kingdom.
After several days, I called my credit card companies to see if there was any activity on those cards.  There was none.  However, I cancelled the cards and requested new numbers.  I also ordered a new driver’s license.
And of course, I called a practitioner to know the truth with me.  One item that bothered me was that my house keys were in the purse, and whoever had the purse would also know my home address (from the driver’s license). The practitioner and I prayed to know that Principle was at work, and that God and we are to know that people are inherently honest. I kept calling the stores to have them continue checking to see if someone had turned in my purse.
I had been very worried.  However, after the second week I decided to “let go and let God,” and I released the entire situation to His blessing.  I felt such freedom!!
The day that I released all to God my driver’s license was slid through my mail slot along with the mail.  On it was a note that one of the stores had my wallet!  That same day my driver’s license arrived from the Dept. of Transportation.
The lady that had left the license had also given me her phone number.  I left a message for her to call me back, and when she did she told me that my entire purse was at the store. and that since she lived nearby she’d be happy to deliver it to me.  What a fantastic offer!!  However, I couldn’t wait, so that next morning I quickly drove to the store and retrieved my purse, but nobody could tell me where they found it or how that after 2 weeks it should suddenly appear.  I called the lady back, and she told me that after 2 weeks the store donates all of the lost and found articles to charities, and somehow my purse got into that pile, which was way in the back of the store.  She apologized profusely that it took 2 weeks to locate the purse, but that the holidays had many new workers who probably were unaware of that particular lost and found location.
I am so very grateful for Christian Science, for the special help of practitioners, and for the gifts from God which we have daily.
