Spiritual ideas that inspire practical solutions to everyday problems

His angels help us out

We all need a little help now and then--especially when we're in trouble. Trouble can come in a variety of different disguises: financial, emotional, physical, geographical, and often when we least expect it. But it's actually right then, in the middle of our deepest darkest troubles, that we can remember there is always an answer. Help is always at hand.

But how do we tap into that help? Well, in the book of Psalms we are reminded that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (46:1). And since God is Spirit, He is everywhere we are, so we can ask Him for help anytime, anywhere. He answers us with angels. All we have to do is listen.

One of my favorite authors, Mary Baker Eddy, (some other faves who inspire me are: Maya Angelou, Dr. Seuss, Apostle Paul) defines angels as "pure thoughts from God, winged with Truth and Love, no matter what their individualism may be" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures). So, naturally, coming straight from God, those angel messages give us thoughts and ideas that are helpful, specific, and individual. So they are sure to meet our need. 

The Psalmist also reminds us (in Ps: 29) that His voice will be heard- in a way we can understand. It thunders--when we need unmistakable clarity. It strengthens--when we desire more resolve. It blesses--when we long to feel peace. His voice is so full of majesty--dignity, beauty, and style-- that it's unmistakable! Everyone can hear it. Everyone.

In fact, in the story, I Go With God, a young child asks God for help and hears just what he needs to handle the trouble. And in the process, he discovers something very cool...

"God is always with us, His angels help us out.

They give us good ideas, like things to sing about. 

Angels make us happy, they make us feel good too.

We can trust His angels, they're here for me and you."
