Angels are for real

When I was a boy I did not believe in angels. Now—for many years an adult—I do believe in them—strongly, positively. I know they exist. I have encountered them again and again.

Each time one appears, it brings with it a blessing. That is part of their nature and identification, for angels are all good. Mrs. Eddy defines them as "God's thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect; the inspiration of goodness, purity, and immortality, counteracting all evil, sensuality, and mortality." Science and Health, p. 581; All believers in the one, loving God surely can agree with that definition.

These messengers from God come to all of us. There are no exceptions, because God loves each one of us and shows no partiality. The trouble is, many people do not recognize angels. Thinking back, I realize I had experienced their coming long before I knew what they were. Sometimes I obeyed them, but too often I would ignore them as unimportant or irrelevant thoughts. To be sure to profit by these messages, one should know their nature and be alert to recognize their source as God. Spiritualized thought enables us to perceive and act on these spiritual intuitions.
