Last week there was an accident on our corner and later we heard
that a woman had died. She was simply waiting at a bus stop, a car
careened out of control, hit her, and her life was over
Some would have asked, “Where were her angels? Why didn’t her angels
The Angels Speake:
Little ones, we are always with you. Always. We protect you every
day in many more ways than you can imagine. To give an example, we
line the highways with our energy so traffic can move in an orderly
fashion. We remind drivers to pay attention, to check their
automobiles, to remember their turn-off is close, and to keep the
sleepy ones awake. We are very busy protecting you on the highways
and streets and roads.
So what happens when there is an accident? Did we fail to do our
job? No. Truly, there are no accidents. There are only lessons.
Whenever a “lesson” begins to unfold for the eventual greater good
of everyone involved, we are there. Yes, definitely. We are there to
make sure the event unfolds in the best way that all may learn who
are in the situation.
People think that because bad things happen, we don’t love you or
aren’t helping you. Why is there war, or concentration camps, or
illness, or pain? Why do we not seem to help when you pray for aid
so sincerely? You might ask where are the angels when you see others
suffer? Where were we when the car hit the woman?
Perhaps each of you has a story about how you narrowly escaped
disaster, or did NOT escape a tragedy. It may take years to have the
objectivity to see it, but within every situation there is a balance
of “good” and “bad.” In this case, the woman’s lifetime on earth was
complete. Her lessons had been learned. Yes, her family will grieve,
and the lad who hit her will despair, but the angels will continue
their work of comfort for the others involved.
We were there! We were there making sure no one else was involved in
the “accident” and that her transition to the other side was swift
and easy. We made sure that the experience was just as it was
supposed to be for the people and lessons involved. From our view,
it was a holy event. It was good.
You are thinking that love only happens when it feels good or there
are acceptable results. Love equates with happiness for many people.
Before your soul entered your body, you requested to learn lessons
and do work here on earth. The method of how the lesson is learned,
or the work you are to do is part of your personal plan to do the
greater good, whether you are consciously aware of it or not. And
many of the lessons are learned through discomfort and painful
experiences. Pain accelerates growth and learning.
We are protecting not only you in a circumstance, but the purpose of
the lesson and the situation. Just because you ask us for a result
doesn’t mean that it will happen the way you desire. You see your
own point of view. We see the Greater Good unfolding in God’s plan,
within your own life purpose and plan. Trust. Trust. Trust. God is
in charge and all is always well.
Rest today and know that God has sent his angels to protect you in
every experience of your life.
