You have probably heard about the physics of the "quest." How everyone that crosses our path is part of our own puzzle, whether we realize it or not. Some are less obvious as they show up in a variety of uniforms: contractors, service reps, lawn maintenance, housekeeping, etc. The angels have taught me over the years to be vigilant and open to these routine messengers.
For instance, many years ago, our landlord called to set up an appointment. A pest control service annual inspection of our rental was due. When I heard the company name, I knew something more was up. The Alpha-Omega Pest Service.
God said in the Bible, "I am the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the beginning and the end.
On these rare visits, I try to remember to silently ask the angels to be with us. I also call on the Holy Spirit and ask for a holy relationship with the person. He raises the communication to a higher level.
There was some irony on the day of our inspection as I listened to the pest control serviceman share a story about his own "pestilence" in the past. And how forgiveness was the answer. A man he knew quite well had suddenly become hurtful, saying mean things about him to others. Rather than worry, he tried to ignore it. But as time went on, he found a heaviness within, a bitterness and resentment as he began to entertain hateful thoughts about his accuser. Not liking who he was becoming, he earnestly prayed to God for help in forgiving this man, as well as himself.
A short time later he had a powerfully beautiful dream. Glorious angels of golden light were cheering him on for choosing to forgive. The vision was so real he was almost moved to tears by just how close the angels are to each of us, and how great their love is for all humanity. Their jubilant celebration reminded him of Jesus' words: "Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth." (Luke 15:10)
Something happened a short time later, out of the blue one day, he had an apology from his friend for such hateful behavior. The power of forgiveness is real.
Forgiveness is hard to do on our own at times, but if we ask for God's help, our pestilence will be cleared away and we will rejoice in the Truth.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
