The Angel of Endurance

The man who removed the mountain
began by carrying away small stones.
     ~Chinese Proverb

In the Bible, God often sent his Angel to give a message in a dream to someone, to show them a new way and give them surety that God was with them and they will succeed in life.   So they didn't give up, they hung on to the promise given in the dream. 

The Angel of Endurance beckons us to stick to what we've undertaken to do.  Sometimes things get too difficult and we are tempted to give up.  A sense of meaningless takes hold.  We tell ourselves what's the point, it can never happen.  And nothing develops.  We scatter our energies and lose the thrust.  After awhile, we begin not to trust our inner guidance. 

In order for something to grow it must take root.  In the scripture, Christ says:  "They have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then when trouble or persecution arises... immediately they fall away." (Mark 4:17)

It takes great learning to understand that we are not simply prey to our circumstances.  We can do something.  It begins by trusting that we are not alone.  His Angels have been given charge over us to guide us in all of our ways.

When you want to quit, it's your five senses deceiving you.  Claim the truth that you live and more in an atmosphere of divine love.  You are a spiritual being in a physical experience.  Open up to receive more understanding, with understanding comes peace. A way opens where there was none.

It is comforting to know that no matter where we are or what we are doing, we are in constant loving companionship with unseen celestial messengers.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and blessings,
