This week my dad came over to fix my broken television and my brother fixed my broken toilet while I was at work. What a blessing these things are in single girl world! Angels. I also received a series of texts from a friend that floored me. She nailed EXACTLY what I needed and I didn’t even know I needed it. What a blessing that is! Angel.
This week I had a patient ask to pray over me and that has NEVER happened. I’ve had patients say they’ll pray for me as I have them but after this particular patient’s test was finished she literally took my hand, looked me directly in the eyes, and said “Guard yourself against hardness of heart. God will protect what the enemy wants to steal. In the name of Jesus Christ, you will not be harmed.” Angel. Her words brought immediate tears. I didn’t even know I was struggling until she called it out. I’m so grateful for this woman’s BOLD faith and strength to speak that over me. There were no words after, only tears and hugs. It took me a good 30 minutes to just catch my breath after that. What a blessing she is! Her boldness blew me away….. Amazing faith. Amazing strength.
I received a phone call just this morning that confirmed once again that there are angels among us. Yes, we have guardian angels watching over and protecting us, but God also uses us, His children, to do His work and show His love in each other’s lives. When someone helps you, encourages you, prays for you, forgives you, shows you grace, speaks truth over you, lifts you up, they are doing God’s work here on earth. Recognize it and thank GOD for them. I am BLESSED to have a couple friends who text Bible verses to me faithfully, family who pray for me, friends who love me (all of me). These are priceless. Money can’t buy love. God graciously gives when we need it most. He gives when we don’t even KNOW we need it. Thank GOD for the seen and unseen angels in our lives.
