Angel Hug

Yesterday, I was feeling down.  Hoping that even though I couldn’t change the circumstance, I could change my feelings about it, I started first by asking my Guardian Angel for a hug.

Yes, a hug.

And yes, I really did.

Better yet, I got one.

But you know how we sometimes melt and start bawling when someone gives us a hug at a time when we are holding it all together but feeling really upset?  It was such a comforting hug from my Guardian Angel, I thought the waterworks might start.  But instead, I felt calm and bolstered.  I was surprised but glad.

Then my Guardian Angel shared a message with me:  …and in all things, give …

Being connected to a man of the cloth [my dad is a retired educational missionary, pastor, and professor of world religions], I asked him for context.  While a Google search had yielded a passage in Thessalonians, my father immediately thought of this passage from Philippians.

Philippians 4:4-7

King James Version (KJV)

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

The verse from Thessalonians was apropos too:

1 Thessalonians 5:18

King James Version (KJV)

18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

And my search also led me to this video, also very much relevant to my feelings of yesterday:

And it all comes down to this: when in doubt, give thanks.  Or just give.
