Thought for the Week

A friend shared with me an experience she had while going through chemotherapy. After her treatments she would come home, lie on the couch, unable to do anything but stare at the walls. While she was alone in the room, she felt she was never alone. She felt the clear presence of angels with her. As a result, she never felt afraid. She had a sense that others were there taking care of her.

During my deepest points of loss or crisis, I too never felt alone ... when I got still. Whether I was a 17-year-old lying in a ditch after a car wreck waiting for someone to find me, or alone in a hospital after a miscarriage, or after losing my mom and my marriage... I was not alone. I felt the presence of God’s Spirit and, yes, the presence of angels.

I believe that in our extreme situations, angels are with us. They are probably there all the time, but in those desperate moments the veil between the spirit world and the physical world is paper thin. We feel like if we looked hard enough, we’d see someone sitting in that chair beside us, holding space for our healing, sending us love and light.

The next time you find yourself at the limit of what your body, heart or mind can take... look around and know that you are not alone. Allow yourself to get quiet and feel angels near. Receive what they are offering.

When you truly understand that you are not alone, that God and angels are on your side, you have the confidence – God’s confidence to know that nothing is impossible. (From my book, "Confidence Rising! Trust Your Heart. Be Yourself. Bless Lives")

All my best,

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? …

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

“Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:35, 38–39).
