FOLLOW THE ANGELS
This writer shares several occasions when inspired thoughts came to her family's aid.
My New friends and I agreed: We often just wished that God's messages could be so clear that there would be no way to miss them. The three of us had all just relocated to a small Michigan town, and were sharing our prayer-filled reasoning for the move during an interfaith luncheon. The minister's wife swore that she would gladly sacrifice a bush in the front yard to fire, for one good Moses-like sign. The president of the college in town, who was hosting the luncheon, laughed that she'd just like to come downstairs in the morning and find guidance written on the living room wall!
But we all agreed that a divine impulsion had brought us to this new community, and that, even if there were no burning bushes, we all had been able to clearly understand what God wanted us to do through subtler, quieter messages. I'd come to understand that these messages are what Science and Health characterizes as angels—"God's thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect; the inspiration of goodness,purity, and immortality, counteracting all evil, sensuality, and mortality" (p. 581).
For my husband and me, there had been so many of these intuitions along the way that had encouraged and supported us in this move. God had been clearly directing and guiding us in every step as we relocated. And our three years in that small town were filled with many blessings.
