My daughter recently shared quite an extraordinary experience involving angels…
“Mommy! Guess what happened last night? I saw three ANGELS! I woke up and there they were…watching me! One was tall and skinny and she was up on the curtains, another was on the other side of the curtains and she was smiling like the skinny angel. Then there was a little one that was kind of chubby sitting with her legs criss-cross applesauce on my stuffed animal bin! She was so cute, mom! She had a little look like she was going to giggle. They were all white but you could see through them. They were all looking at me and kept smiling, and I smiled back. Then, when I woke up this morning, the angels were gone.”
Angels. My baby saw angels.
What we can’t see, what we can’t feel, and what we can’t quite understand…we long to know. Most of us walk in faith, believing in all we can’t see, feel, or understand. Within our sacred sanctuaries, we search for purpose and protection while we find peace in knowing we are cared for and loved by an Almighty Powerful God. Faith’s landscape is tricky terrain. There are some who choose to believe in the power of humanity over divinity. And yet there are others whose souls deny those deep waters, so they build comfortable barriers of protection that keep them safe and buoyant while floating atop the unknown. I always wonder if they too, yearn for understanding and search in secret…
Is there really a Heavenly Father? Do Angels watch over me? Am I loved and cared for by an Omnipotent Creator? Where is the proof?
I believe these are the timeless questions we all long to answer.
There are powerful stories… divine encounters that exalt Heavenly Realms in some miraculous way, connecting far beyond our own existence. We listen to or read about these experiences with the awe and curiosity of a child, and perhaps we doubt the reality as an adult. Our world is rich with questions, yet too often we find emptiness and echoes of silent answers. We pursue evidence and get lost in the dark swirling reasoning of why and how. Is it real? Is it true? Do I believe?
Is there A Living God?
Don’t we all long for something tangible? Do we sometimes wonder in the corner of our thoughts, if all the glory and divine power and majesty of the Heavens is open to all?
Or even open at all…
