Angels Watching

How was that possible we kept asking?
As there was no logical explanation
It had to be because of divine attention
I mean year end and year out
Everything was kept flawlessly
Despite being in a location not known for safety
It had to be because of God’s angels watching

I’ve been in situations where I desperately needed a helping hand
And in a split second, some stranger came to assist me
Angels take on different forms
I say in the moment of need, some people are just like angels
I remember being reluctant to go somewhere
Because I had to go by myself
Then I took comfort in Psalm 91:11 1
That angels would be watching over me.

Scripture reference:
1 Psalms 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Dressing Up For Church

The Covid 19 pandemic brought many changes to the way we normally live; including the way we held church. When church went virtual, at one point I asked; what are we going to do with all these church clothes? As things got better, churches began to have in person services again but it’s not the same as prior to the pandemic. Services are not as long, auxiliary groups are still meeting online, seats are not filled to capacity, etc.

One thing that is the same, at least for me, is dressing up for church. I still wanna go through the ritual of picking out my best looking clothes and making sure they are color coordinated and of course clean. As it’s a special feeling to look presentable before the Lord in His house. It reminds of the scripture where the Lord told Moses to let the people wash their clothes as the were going before the Lord the next day. So while church service may changed, dressing up for church for me has not.

Scripture reference: Exodus 19:10
And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes.

A Peaceful Night

Having a peaceful night is expected
But shouldn’t be taken for granted
Last night was quiet enough to get some rest
Didn’t have to get up in middle of night for an emergency
Or to defend property or territory
Didn’t get any alerts on the security
Something that seems routine, but they are big blessings

So, at the start of the day
I give the Lord thanks and praise
According to news, many tragedies occurred during night fall
But He protected from them all 1
Having a peaceful night, gives me a clear mind start to the day.

Scripture reference:
1 Psalms 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
