Do we have guardian angels? Personal angels who go where we go, protect us, guide us … even speak with us? I don’t know for certain, but I wouldn’t be surprised.
There are many Biblical references to angels: “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them” (Psalm 34:7). “For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11). To name but two.
And there’s experiential evidence too. All of us probably have stories where a complete stranger seemed to appear at just the right time to prevent an accident, help us make the right decision, find something that was lost etc. etc.
I came across this lovely story recently, which I am happy to re-post. It certainly makes you think …
Have you ever had a slow moving car pull out in front of you while you were rushing to get somewhere important?
Well, that’s happened to me many times.
Ah…but there was this one time that I had to thank my lucky stars for such an encounter!
Picture it…rural Georgia 19??
Lady G, a young mother and graduate student, was driving like a bat out of hell in order to make it to class on time.
I was running, oh I don’t know, 85-ish in a 55 mph kinda situation.
(My brother Tack says I should have been arrested as that was, indeed, ‘reckless driving.’)
I was making pretty good time when, seemingly out of nowhere, this 130 year old man pulled out of a side road onto MY highway!
He was going my way!
Or maybe I was going his way?
