There are many stories of encounters with angels. I happen to have my own. I’m not a hundred percent sure these men were angels but here’s the story.
On a Wednesday night; I was taking my dad to a church service nearby his home in Morganton, NC. He had already been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and although he could still talk; he was very afraid in unfamiliar settings. This was not the church with which he was familiar.
I only took him out at the suggestion of his wife Ruby; just to get him out for a bit. Evenings were always the hardest time of day. Arriving at the church; Dad and I got out of the car and he suddenly dropped to his hands and knees.
I asked, “Daddy what’s wrong?” He replied with his own question. “How do I get over there?” “There” being the church building. He was seeing water instead of pavement. Although my dad was not a huge man; I had no idea how I was going to get him up off that pavement. There seemed to be no one else around. All of a sudden; out of nowhere, appeared two very tall men. I honestly never saw their faces.
One of the men asked; “May I help you?” I said, Yes you can. Although the other man never spoke; they both got on either side of my confused daddy and helped get him back into my car. I looked up to thank them and they were nowhere to be found.
Maybe they were heavenly angels sent to earth to help my daddy, or possibly they were just regular men offering assistance. I guess I’ll never know; however, I believe they were God’s help for my Dad and me during our time of need. What a blessing.
Prayer in Motion:
LORD, thank You for creating angels to be Your messengers. They are always sent with a message or for divine assistance. They only come to do Your bidding. I know we are never to worship or revere them. That only belongs to You LORD. In Jesus Name. Amen.
