Appropriate angels

Your Daily Lift is a two-minute podcast every weekday with Christian Science lecturers. Take a listen:

“Angels are pure thoughts from God, winged with Truth and Love ....” I found this in Mary Baker Eddy’s book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 298). It told me I didn’t need to look for angels, but to listen for them—to get mentally still and expect to receive the spiritual idea or insight that was to meet my need. Doing this, I began to find out just how appropriate these divine messages can be.

For example, as I prayed late one night to be free of painful neck spasms, cutting through the fear came a strong thought: “Read Isaiah.” I just opened my Bible to where I thought Isaiah was, and on the very first page I opened it to, the very first words my eyes lit upon were, “Loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion” (52:2). It makes me smile now. At the time, I felt so close to divine Love. Wow! Love is right here. Love knows my need, and knows how to meet my need. Love knows how to tell me what I need to know.

After praying for some while, I went to bed feeling much more comfortable. The next day, there was no trace of the problem.
