Say a Little Thank You for Those Angels

eden08122015

I chose Alabama’s Angels Among Us for today’s song.  I hope it blesses you as much as it does me.  It makes me want to thank them, and thank God for them.  I don’t even want to think about where I might be without them.

I need to say something here, regarding today’s post about angels.  I didn’t actually hear a voice whisper in my ear; that was just a figure of speech.  Just want to clear that up for those of you who might think I’m crazy.  I am, but only when I’m being “crazy.”

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

They’re Everywhere!

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that God gives His angels charge of us, lest we dash our foot against a stone.  The moment we become His, we are under His divine protection, and, surrounded by tens of thousands of angels who protect, guide, guard, and minister to us.

I was on my way to a boyfriend’s house one night.  He worked late shift, and it was just past midnight.  I was stopped at an intersection awaiting the green light.  When the light changed to green, something told me to just wait a second.  I did, and as I looked to the left, there came two vehicles at breakneck speed, one in pursuit of the other.  A pickup truck was chasing a car.  They came through that intersection, running the red light.  I still get chills thinking about it to this day.  I never even saw them until they were right there at the intersection.  If I had hit the accelerator and gone ahead right when my light turned green, I would have been hit and maybe killed.  Had I been killed, the baby I was pregnant with would have died with me.  Thank God for that still small voice that whispered in my ear at just the right time.  I don’t know why I didn’t see the vehicles coming before Maybe I wasn’t paying close enough attention, because I was tired.  Maybe I was blindfolded by some spiritual force.  I never saw them until they were going through their light.  And all of it happened in what seemed like one split second; that fast.

God’s angels guide us, guard us, and even protect us in the storms, the natural disasters, etc.  They also minister to us.  Have you ever been completely overwhelmed and at the end of your rope.  A song comes on the radio, and it’s exactly what you need to hear right then.  That song speaks to you, giving you a second wind, and lifting you out of the slump.  Yes, God does work in mysterious ways…and so do the angels He assigns to serve us.

Every Day’s Chock Full of Miracles

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that we are walking around in the midst of a world full of miracles.  Every day is chock full of miracles when we walk with our Lord.

I want to share a little miracle, and God’s sense of humor, with you.  As you all know, I love those little mocking birds.  I was sitting at my favorite picnic table a couple of mornings ago.  There’s a little bird that has learned how to sound like an alarm clock.  He also says good morning, and sweet talks in this teeny little voice.  I just love him.  Anyway, I’d finished my prayer, and was enjoying the morning, when the “alarm” went off.  I said, “Everybody’s awake already; who are you trying to wake up?”  “Good morning,” the little bird replied.  Then he sang a little tune.  I said, “I love you.”  He didn’t like that.  He squawked a couple of times, nastily.  Now, I thought he just might have a jealous girlfriend birdie up there.  So, I said, “I don’t want your boyfriend; I’ve got my eyes on somebody else.”  I was quite amused.  He said something that I couldn’t quite make out, so I said, “Oh, really, Sparky?”  He got quiet then.  I get such joy out of those little birds, I said, “Thank you, Jesus, I love you…forever.”  That little bird piped up with what sounded exactly like, “Oh, really, Sparky?!”  I laughed so hard.  I can just see Jesus up there laughing at me.  And, do you all know that was a miracle, tailor made for me?  Yeah, God will do that just for you!  Every day is chock full of miracles.  We just don’t often look in the right places for them, or recognize them when they come to us.

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

Doubt Fades in the Light of Intimacy

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that God longs for us to know Him as intimately as He knows us.  While that degree of perfection in intimacy is seemingly impossible for us to achieve, I believe with all my heart that we can come pretty darn close to it.                                                                                                                                I’ve had days that were near perfect in regard to feeling and experiencing that oneness with the Lord.  I wish I could say that I get it right every day, but I am not perfected yet.                                                                                                                                      There’s a statement in the message that reads like this: “It is not sin for one who knows Me only as God, as Creator, to doubt Me, to question my Love and purposes.  But for one who knows Me as you do, as Friend and Savior, and who knows the world’s God as Father — for that one to doubt My purpose and saving Power and tender Love is wrong indeed.”  I learned two things from this.  The first is that God does not hold us at arm’s length.  Neither, therefore, should we hold Him at arm’s length.  Nope, we need to snuggle right up under those loving arms of His.  We can wrap our arms around Him and just rest there, in His embrace, whenever we want to.  He loves it!  Secondly, when things aren’t going as smoothly-especially within-as they should be, I need to examine how I’m relating to God.  Am I out there at arm’s length, or even further, from Him in my heart?  And if so, why?  What am I trying to hide, avoid, or what am I afraid of, etc.? 

Do you know that God makes you so bold, that you can even laugh out loud at your own self?!  Yessir, He does!  And He loves us so, He’d a whole lot rather see us laugh it off, get back up, dust ourselves off, and keep on going toward home full tilt, rather than watch us taking timid little steps as if we’re walking on egg shells.  That stuff will cripple you altogether if you’re not careful.  You get into sorry mind sets and pathetic attitudes, all based on fears, because you’ve gotten too far away from your strong tower.  Remember who prowls out there, waiting to use that fear against you.  There’s only one solution to that problem, and that is to get right back into God’s presence and spend some time with Him.  One of the reasons I love my daily visits with the Lord so much, is that every moment in His presence infuses my spirit with His life, His love, His grace, mercy, peace, and joy.  Isn’t it awesome that God can pack a day’s worth of “go gettem” into a few minutes of your time?!  Thank you, Heavenly Father, for your awesome love and mercy!
