IF EVER THERE WAS A TIME FOR THE INTERCESSION OF ANGELS…

This is most apparent if you live anywhere that the seasons prevail.  You see spring, summer, autumn and winter.  Each season has its advantages and sometimes its troubles.  The Native Americans counted their summers to determine their age.  Children are generally immune to a change of times.

Most of us recognize that a Recession or a Depression spells widespread trouble.  So does drought and famine, flood and any other natural disaster.  All of these are well beyond the influence of the individual when it comes to changing or fixing..  That is another way of saying; no single person can change the course of these kinds of problems.

Occasionally, we can move away from these troubles and sometimes we can’t (where can you go when the problem is worldwide? What angle is available?).   Sometimes the problem is so personal that the solution can’t be found through ordinary means.  “Who you gonna call?  1 800 My ANGEL?”  What are you going to do when a real live angel shows up?

It is no longer a question of whether there are angels or not.  It really is that question…what am I going to do? Angels belong to the unique group called “supernatural” or we perceive them as “ghostly, weird, bizarre, or paranormal.”  Normal people don’t mess with strange, ghostly people.

Why do angels come to children most of the time?  Why don’t they come to us, why don’t they come more often?  It’s only natural because we would not enjoy their company.  Most of us are not ready.  Got culture shock?  You bet we do, that’s why the first thing they say is, “Don’t be afraid. I’m your fellow servant.”  Even Mary, the mother of Jesus, had to be assured that she was not unworthy.  Her angel said, “Hail Mary, do not be afraid, for you have found favor in the sight of God.”

You are worthy of an angel’s visit!

Angels come to children because no one else is in the condition to receive them.  Kids don’t have the same difficulty we adults do when it comes to “suspending our disbelief.”  You see angels will come to anyone who can believe. It wouldn’t hurt if we also didn’t feel so damn guilty, either.  That’s what’s so sad about it.  We could enjoy them, if we were not so guilty. We are perfectly qualified to receive them, if we weren’t so afraid of them.

Joseph Smith was very young when he saw an angel.  He was still an innocent country boy!  What does this have to do with us?  We don’t like angels fooling around with us! But just a moment, what do angels do?  Keeping it simple, an angel’s job is to bring a message.  He brings the word when he delivers his message.  He talks with you.  Some people call it chatting.  He doesn’t come to command or address you but to chat with you, to converse with you, to have an “intimate” talk with you.

Can we learn from someone else’s experience with an angel?  Not long ago an owner of a carpet cleaning company had a series of visits from an angel, he came to know as Mark Angeli.  This angel brought timely messages about how to market and manage his carpet cleaning business.  This is because he did, what the angel said. With an angel’s help, he saved his dying business.  In addition, he is currently able to withstand any effects the recession is throwing at him.  For a sample of this carpet cleaner’s angelic experience, send a blank email to yesdocmiller@gmail.com with “carpet cleaner’s angel” in the subject line.

In these few moments, we learned that disasters including our recession are often bigger than most individuals have power to change.  Although there is no 800 number to call help, even if we knew WHAT we needed, is available.  Of the many forms, angels are empowered to assist. Usually, however, our fear or guilt gets in the way of this supernatural help.  When we can do as children do so well by suspending our disbelief then angels can attend us.  Mark Angeli helped an owner of a carpet cleaning company reclaim direction and control through using marketing techniques and methods of management.  Perhaps we can learn from his experiences, too.
